The big idea represented in these images is connection. Students interact with the world around them. Every choice they make affects not only them, but others. These interactions are organic as well as inorganic; macroscopic as well microscopic. I am drawn to this idea because I feel that people think that events in this universe are isolated with no consequence. We must realize that every event is tied to events that happened before and will connect with the future. I want my students to know that they have a voice and a choice; they are a force within this universe.
The first image shows how something as simple as a spider web and connect in such a way to be a strong beautiful force. The second images shows the image of man made out of stone; my representation of how organic and inorganic are connected. The third image represents how one choice (water entering a pool) can cause a chain ripple effect of action.
