PHOTOS: Grade 6 History Students Engage in Art Project Exploring World Religions

Grade 6 students let out their creativity in their most recent world history unit, applying their knowledge of the five major world religions toward an art project of their choosing.

Students were encouraged to think outside the box with their art, though it must showcase something meaningful about the religion chosen between the five options: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism.

“Our goal with this project was to learn the role religion plays in the lives of its followers and to expand our understanding of the similarities and differences in the five major world religions,” Middle School history teacher Rian Otto said.

Students went a number of different ways with their art, including stop-motion video, stained glass with tissue paper, clay sculptures, origami, mixed media creations and even sewing projects.

Gloria Zhou did two digital art pieces, one depicting Christianity and one depicting Hinduism. She used Procreate to make the pieces because of the program’s “bright, bold colors.”

Grade 6 world history is a yearlong course where students learn about the lives of the earliest humans, studying civilizations, geography and how geographic place is significance in the development of the human story.
