MakerEd and Fall Fans

Students have been learning about the artistry of Japanese fans. We explored seasonal fan designs and enjoyed a Maple Fan Dance video from Kyoto.

Using fall colours, with inspiration from Ehlert, some classes designed fans with wooden handles using crayons, cut out leaves or by painting maple leaves collected from outside.

To celebrate the work of their peers, Grade 4 and 5 students created stop motion videos using keys from discarded laptops or used Lego to design display stands for the fans.

Students had to work co-operatively, share the materials as well as show respect for the work of their peers.
