Mexico is famous for its diverse landscapes, which include: Mountains, Deserts/ Arid lands, cities and Rainforests. Can you recall where these landscapes are located? Why are the rainforests located in the south of Mexico? Can you link this to your knowledge of Tropics? We covered this in class prior to the school closures!

Your task is to create a Mexican landscape painting using some of the Mexican cultural colours (Bold colours such as red, yellow and orange) I know rainforest or deserts are not Mexican cultural colours but try to be creative and incorporate these colours into your artwork.

To Explore the concept of inspiring someone

Imagine you are a branch on a tree.  How could you encourage other branches to grow?  To bear fruit?  What sort of acts could you do at home and in your community to inspire other branches to produce lush, green leaves and fruit?  How could you inspire the whole tree to be its very best it can be? 

Think deeper! How could you inspire a forest to grow?

This time, draw your tree with one large branch representing you.  In each leaf, write down a word or phrase that will help make you and the tree its very best.  Think of your acts of kindness, your manners, your ability to share and to help.
