I love combining Art and Science. This week we did observational drawings and watercolours of red bottle brush flowers. Fits beautifully with our integrated History (Australian colonisation), Geography (States of Australia) and Science (Australian Native Plants and Animals)... A touch of Australian Poetry doesn't hurt either.
