Reflections on Observation Task 3: Supporting Learning through the Performing


Arts: Music and Movement
Read the questions below and choose one to answer
1. The creative arts teach children that problems can have more than one

solution and that questions can have more than one answer. One of the
large lessons kids can learn from practicing creative arts is that there are
many ways to see and interpret the world. In your opinion, why is this
important and what impact does this have on education?
2. Creative thinking and reasoning have been identified and highlighted as an
essential twenty-first-century skill by many business, education, community
and government leaders. In your opinion, do you think that this is an
important skill for children to learn? Why or why not.

3. Some people view creative arts education as a luxury and do not help with
the building blocks of child development. In your opinion, what are the
benefits for children who are engaged in creative arts in school?
The creative arts education is very important for the students because it help them to
learn by doing. For example if the lesson about the animals and the teacher play a music
video that include how the animal move (jump, walketc.) and students imitate the animal
that will help them to get information about the animals.
Also, creative art education will develop students physical skills (fine and gross motor). For
example: when the students do movement they will develop their fine and gross motor.
