Children were very excited about this project, of course! They are Grade 4 and they feel close to and familiar with street art. Unfortunately the downside for them was there was no spraying (not for me though).
We did this project in our history unit. We spoke about Berlin wall and street art in general from times of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring on. We learned about the power of words, the strength of the letters and it’s colours. In the end it was fun even without spraying cans.
