Sixth grade art students have recently made plant and animal cell pillows by using the running stitch and the whip stitch to sew their creations. The pillow designs are based on students' drawings of reference illustrations. The organelles of the plant cells shown here were affixed to the surface of the pillows with fabric glue. Students stuffed their pillows with poly-fill. This project reinforces science class content and is part of our school's integrated STREAM approach.
