PreK had a blast getting making noise and getting messy making these paper mache maracas. The structure is made out of plastic easter eggs and 2 spoons for the handle. Students experimented with sound by mixing different types and amounts of filling. We did one layer of white paper mache the 1st time and colorful tissue paper the 2nd time. This served 2 purposes: it serves as decoration and it added more strength with an additional layer of paper mache.
Kindergarteners went on a field trip to a pizzeria to learn how to make pizza while studying how to books. In art we created collage pizzas. We "baked" them in our pizza oven (drying rack). On the day we added our toppings one of the kindergartners was very outspoken about his pizza being a sushi not anchovy pizza. Can you spot the sushi pizza?
These 2 cell animations were inspired by the work of Marty Cooper.
The 4th graders created 2 cells for their animation. They either made their character blink/wink, stick their tongue out, open/close their mouth, or came up with an independent challenge. Check out a few of them.
4th graders created these hero/villain self portraits ages ago! We finally put them on display. Each student had to come up with a hero or villain name, costume, tool, symbol, and catch phrase before creating these life size drawings.
5th graders are collaborating with the kindergarteners for this project. Kindergarteners worked in teams to draw monsters. 5th graders chose a monster and interviewed the kindergarten artists to find out more details about the monster. Next the 5th graders will be creating plush versions of the monsters and packaging for their toys. These are their package design plans.
