Yay for CLAY!

Just a few animal bells and wall hangings to get you through the holiday break. The bells were made for 4th graders and the bird hangings were made by 1st graders.





What does the fox say?

No Trees Were Harmed for This Project

Amate Bark Painting. This project has been out there for a long time, but it is always a success.

While walking at one of our great recreational parks, I saw the curling bark of a birch tree and knew that it would help the students understand that the paintings were created on real bark. Of course, I added my disclaimer so that the students wouldn't strip the poor trees at the park.
