We discussed Mail Art and Fluxus (there are many explanations to the meaning of the name but of course we loved the one connected to the toilet the most!!) across the Grade 4.
I always wanted to do this with kids but it’s a bit complicated since you need people to send mail to. And they have to know what it is about when they get the mail. So it’s a bit of organization involved.
I can’t believe I’m saying this but here Covid actually worked in our favour.
Since new regulations divided our classes in half so half of students don’t see each other any more, we decided to write each other letters, print stamps, draw, make objects.
It was really exciting to go and pick up the mail they left for us from previous week and add something to it. The free interpretation and creation are something students really loved.
