Art Smarts

Art Smarts was a blast!  We learned about Keith Haring and how his work often showed movement.  (You can visit his kids site here!)

Our class split into two groups.  One half was the dancers, the other was the drawers.  When the music started, the dancers danced, but when the music stopped, the dancers froze, and someone drew them in the position they were in.

After everyone got to dance and draw, we cut out the drawings and glued it to a poster.  Then we added the movement lines.

Every class in the school made a poster.  The posters were hung up in the school all together.  It is very cool with all the posters next to each other!

We even ended with a conga line!

Disability Awareness Day

During Disability Awareness day, MS. Diem's class learned how it is to have a disaility.  We learned how hard it is to have a disability.  We also learned that even if you have a disability, it doesn't have to stop you from doing something!

Inventions and Innovations!

 We are just wrapping up our unit!
The unit was called We've Got The Power, and it's in the Transdisciplinary Theme of How The World Works.  For this unit, we studied energy and innovation.  Our focus was heat and electrical energy, along with magnets.
For our final project we had to invent a new toy or tool, or innovate something to make it better.

There were SO many great ideas!  It was fun watching everyone present!  There were lots of questions asked, and lots of answers given.
