  • Next 4th Graders worked on Day of The Dead Skeletons. The project is based on the ideas of this Mexican holiday. Students could decorate their skeletons to honor someone they loved that had passed away.

    4th Graders learned about the importance of Sun Gods to the Aztecs. They each then created their own unique Sun God out of cardboard.
  • 4th Graders next learned about Tesselations and the artist MC Escher. They all created their own "puzzle" piece and created a repeating pattern on paper.
