Artists Jodie Davidson and Sue Girak will be working with the Years 5 & 6 this term to study Economics. They are using the Arts to teach students to learn the difference between a need and awant, and how to make wise choices with limited resources.
Last week, the students worked with salvaged materials to build something they liked. Many of the students made objects they want but do not need, e.g. make-up palettes, trampolines and castles. Others built items we do need in the 21stcentury such as garbage trucks and cars. However, there were a few grey areas, such as when is a dog kennel a need or a want?
