    Healthy Food for A Healthy World丨双语部三年级的探究时光

    This year the second Unit of Inquiry for Grade 3 bilingual students focuses on “Healthy Food for a Healthy World”. In Visual Arts class the students began their exploration of healthy food by drawing different fruits, vegetables and nuts in chalk pastels. Then, in small groups, the children brainstormed different healthy foods. Each group chose one healthy food to use as inspiration for a Pottery Project. The goal of the Pottery Project is for each student to design and make a bowl for their favorite healthy food.

    本学期,双语部三年级的第二个探究单元关注“健康食品,健康世界”。在视觉艺术课上,同学们用色粉笔画出不同的水果、蔬菜和坚果,开启了他们探索健康食品的旅程。随后,同学们分成小组,开动脑筋,列举出各种各样的健康食品。每个小组从中选择一种,作为陶艺项目的灵感。在本次陶艺项目中,同学们需要分别为他们最喜爱的健康食品设计并制作一个碗。



    Pottery Project Step #1:

    陶艺项目第1步:

    The students had a class discussion in English where they analyzed a variety of ceramic bowls from around the world.

    同学们在课堂上用英语讨论并分析了世界各地的陶瓷碗。


    Pottery Project Step #2:

    陶艺项目第2步:

    The students drew a bowl design from two perspectives, a side view and an aerial view.

    同学们绘制了两个角度的设计图:平视图和俯视图。


    Pottery Project Step #3:陶艺项目第3步:

    Using real-life examples of their favorite healthy food as inspiration, the students added textures, patterns and imagery to their bowl designs.

    同学们以最喜爱的健康食品为灵感,进一步完善碗的设计,为它添加纹理、图案和形象等。


    Pottery Project Step #4:陶艺项目第4步:

    The students went to Chutian Pottery Studio at 9:00 am on Wednesday. Mrs. Jiang introduced the history of ceramics and taught the students how to use a potter’s wheel and make pinch pots by hand. The students decorated their bowls using the design they drew in class. The students encountered many challenges because for some of them it was their first experience working with clay.  However, all of the students really enjoyed their learning journey at the Chutian Pottery Studio.

    The students will have a second chance to go to the pottery studio after their decorated bowls have been fired and become bisque ware.  On their next visit, the students will glaze their bowls. Glazing is one process for adding color to ceramic art.

    同学们在星期三上午9:00到达了楚天陶艺馆。江老师先是给大家讲述了陶瓷的发展历史,然后教同学们使用陶土机拉胚和用手塑形。当学生们完成这一步后,需要在自己的作品上贴一个姓名条,随后按照在课堂上完成的设计稿装饰各自的碗。在拉胚的过程中,同学们遇到了许多挑战。部分同学是第一次体验拉胚,因此不能很好地把握节奏和力度。但所有人都乐在其中。

    等到土胚烧制成陶瓷制品后,同学们将再次去到陶艺馆,为他们的碗上釉(上釉是为陶瓷制品上色的一道工序)。
