Second graders are writing personal narratives and learning that their memoirs (in writing and in art) allow them to share their perspective and experiences. Students are creating 6-Word-Memoir-Self-Portraits that represent their personal memoirs in an artistic form.
Third graders are learning about the structure and function of local government. In their arts-integration project, students are using photography and painting to identify, capture and share examples of local government in our community. Each student is taking a photograph of an example of our local government and turning that image into a hand-painted puzzle. Students are also exploring the ways that our local government is like a puzzle (i.e. pieces coming together to make a whole, etc.).
