Learning Intention: To create Christmas baubles using markers or highlighters on paper towels and water.

Introduction: 1. Begin the lesson by asking the students what they have learned from the Light and Shadow topic. Create a spider diagram on the board to visually represent their responses.

Main Activity: 1. Explain to the students that they will be creating Christmas baubles using markers or highlighters on paper towels and water. 2. Distribute paper towels to each student. If there are no paper towels in the classroom, ask for assistance from Alex. 3. Provide markers or highlighters for the students to use. If they have their own, they can use those, otherwise, they can use the ones provided in the classroom. 4. Instruct the students to fold the paper towel in half and then in half again to create a smaller square. 5. Ask the students to draw a design or pattern on one side of the folded paper towel using the markers or highlighters. Encourage them to experiment with different colors and shapes. 6. Once they have finished their design, instruct the students to dip the folded paper towel into a container of water. They should only dip it partially, ensuring that the water reaches the colored side of the paper towel. 7. As the water is absorbed by the paper towel, the colors will spread and blend together, creating a watercolor effect. 8. Allow the paper towels to dry completely before unfolding them to reveal the finished Christmas baubles. 9. Once dry, the students can cut out the baubles and hang them up as decorations.

Conclusion: 1. Have a class discussion about the process and the results of creating the Christmas baubles. 2. Ask the students to reflect on what they enjoyed about the activity and what they learned from it. 3. Display the finished baubles around the classroom or in a designated area to showcase the students’ work.
