I've just posted this in the art and craft topic but thought that someone glancing here may have some nuggets of wisdom,too. I've got a Year 4 class in a couple of weeks for a 2 hour lessson; their topic is 'Houses and Homes'. They have already completed a clay plaque, a watercolour painting of their dream home and wallpaper printed designs. I really need a one-off lesson with a 'wow' factor for an important display. Maybe collage? Maybe .........?! Please help!

what about homes through the ages - start with caves, move onto log huts, then wattle and daub, etc etc? Might be a bit "old" for them but could be fun!

or homes round the world - teepees, igloos, bamboo huts, that kind of thing?

DS is Yr4.
What he would enjoy and would really throw himself into would be a picture of either a home he'd like, or "homes in the future", space-age, Eco-warrior, whatever they fancy but in an imaginative/creative way.

Something he could draw or paint or even do on 'puta.
