4R: Come and look at our learning!

Animal Attributes

Published Friday, August 19, 2011.
Last updated: Friday, August 19, 2011

Today 4R have been thinking about which attributes are associated with different kinds of animal.  They decided that elephants and horses symbolise power, freedom and travel.  Owls were considered to be wise, quiet and knowledgeable.  Large cats such as lions, tigers and cheetahs were thought to be brave, risk-takers and strong.  Others thought that dolphins and whales are more reflective thinkers.  We then looked at the IB learner attitudes and thought of animals that could represent them.  For example, some children thought cats and monkeys were curious inquirers.  Some associated good communicators with elephants and penguins.   

The next task was to decide on an animal that represented themselves and the attributes that they considered to be their personal strengths.  The class used watercolours to create a background and oil pastels to draw the animals and write on the personality traits.
