Day 8: Conflict Resolution – Keith Haring Figures Part I

 

Goal:

    Students work together to create a mural modeling cooperation and conflict resolution

 

Process:

      Solving problems in your school and trying to make it safe for everyone, is a GIANT undertaking. How can you do this? After all you’re just kids!? Working together is sometimes the best way to understand others. Everybody has different perspectives and ideas. When you work as a team you have to resolve conflicts, agree on ideas, and how to implement them. People working together can sometimes resemble a big machine with each person being a different part of the machine. If everyone works together you can create a big machine out of many different parts. This machine can create harmony, an environment of mutual cooperation and a culture of kindness in your school.
  1. Look at the book ” The Way Things Work ” by David Macaulay. Pick several of the illustrations from Part One to show the students the mechanics of movement. Discuss levers, wheels and axles, gears and belts, cams and cranks, pulleys, screws and springs.
  2. Alternatively or in addition, buy an inexpensive wind up alarm clock and take it apart to show the students how the gears and springs connect and work.
  3. Demonstrate that wheels and gears are various-sized circles that fit together with different sized teeth. Pulleys, levers, axles and other pieces of machinery are also made up of simple shapes.
  4. Have the children sketch different machinery parts from illustrations or real parts.
