The Third Grader's Bird Animations!

We put these together using the 3D paper birds the students made-  they learned about simple stop animation while flying their birds across the sky!

4th Grade 2016-17 SheHero Animations!

Last Spring the 4th graders created these paper face animations of their Hero/Shero project.  They learned how to make a paper stop animation, and they included a quote from their person as well as a voice over.
And they did a great job!

4th Grade Hero/Shero Paper Face Animations!

Fourth graders are finishing up their incredible paper animation projects!  I've never done this with 4th grade before, usually with upper level students but these kids are doing amazing work!  I'll post some of the videos later-  these are to give you an idea of how they worked!

Photos from our 3rd Grade MIA Trip

Yesterday, Feb 23, we had our Third Grade trip to MIA to see selected works from the Native American collection, and everyone was just great!  The time always flies by so fast and the kids asked such great questions.

3rd Grade Applehead Dolls!

We have been working really hard on our applehead dolls!  We started these by carving apples, stringing them on wire, dipping them into lemon juice and sprinking them all over thickly with salt and then dangling them over newspaper for a few weeks to dry and shrink. While they shrank, students twisted wire and fabric together and learned how to design and sew clothing for their figures.  Hair, eyes, hands and feet have all been added, and other accessories.

Students have been finishing up props and backgrounds and writing a tiny bio for their figures.  They will all be on display in the glass cases just outside the artroom by next week.  Come on up and take a look!  See if you can figure out their occupation before reading about it!

4th Grade Circus'!

We are working hard on our circus performers and acts in 4th grade-  after viewing Alexander Calder's "Cirque De Calder" and discussing six basic Simple Machines (lever, wheel and axel, pulley, inclined plane, wedge, and screw), students started planning and designing their own performers.  Go ahead and ask them to describe these machines to you!
Here's some photos of students learning how to use the tools and create their performers~
