Celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table

2019 is the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Periodic Table. Introduce your students to the concept of elements and let them explore their presence in the world around them.

 
 

Our Year 7 students had an amazing experience creating a song for their graduation. The sessions running across one school term added value to their learning allowing them to gain a real insight into the song writing and recording process and reflect on their feelings about moving into high school. I would recommend the creative workshops Create Space Adelaide has to offer.

about our teaching artists

Simon and Louise are qualified educators trained in both creative arts and primary school teaching, and have current DCSI clearances for working with children. Our sessions are designed to link with the Australian Curriculum and are suitable for a range of ages and capabilities. We believe that the arts are a fantastic way to encourage student engagement and learning across a variety of curriculum areas (as in our science-based activities looking at biodiversity and the periodic table). We also believe the arts offer a way of supporting students’ wellbeing, including during their preparation for transition to high school as addressed in our graduation song project. If you have any questions about these workshops or would like to speak with us about adapting a workshop to meet your students' specific needs, please contact us via the button below:

 

* Please note, these workshops are available to primary schools in Adelaide’s southern, central and western suburbs (generally within 35 km of Oaklands Park, SA). If your school is located outside this area and you are interested in one of our workshops, please contact us via the button above and we’ll be happy to discuss possible arrangements.
