Fourth graders are shown with sailboats that they have built with paper, tape and drinking straws. The hulls and paper mast supports of the boats require precise folding and measurements. Soon students will create a wave-like base with paper and cardboard upon which their boats will rest. The boats and waves will be given a colorful paper mache skin.
Sixth graders have just finished a cell illustration project that reinforces science class content.
The cross images by seventh graders are personalized versions of the San Damiano Crucifix. They combine photos of students' hand-drawn art with coloring and shapes created with the Sketchbook app on iPads. In the areas around Jesus and within the cross shape, students have drawn people, things, and places that they are thankful for. The designs of the areas outside the crosses were inspired by stained-glass windows of churches.
Eighth graders Ava, Patrick, and Hayes are shown modeling their recently constructed cat masks. Soon, eighth graders will be singing a cat-themed song while wearing their masks!
