Our school has a tradition of celebrating the International Day of Peace with our annual pinwheels for peace ceremony. It is always a big hit and a great way to remind students to be peacemakers on a daily basis. I use the pinwheel lesson to teach using symbols in art to show meaning. We talk about the many different symbols that are used to express peace and also symbols from other cultures.The music teacher leads our students in song and sign language and we plant our pinwheels in front of the school for the day. Here are the pictures from this years event.
