Tessellation Project

I recently completed this great Tessellation project with my 4th & 5th graders. This lesson was great for incorporating math and students enjoyed using the translation method to create their own tessellations.

Stunning Still Life

I set up a still life in the art room and we worked on it in several grades. The kids really liked it & wanted to eat the plastic fruit! Here are some of our results.

Pinwheels for Peace

Every year we celebrate the International Day of Peace (September 21st) by creating an art installation of pinwheels in front of our school. Every student creates a pinwheel. Our wonderful PTO helps students assemble them and our music teacher works with students to learn a song of peace and sign language. It is a great event and our school district made a video this year. Here are some of the pictures and the link to the video.

Peace Day bulletin board

Here are some close up pictures of some of the writing the kids have done for our bulletin board. They have a lot of wise words to share that the world can learn a lot from!
