During Art Chat, we loved learning about the artwork of Keith Haring. Many of us, myself included, had seen his "stick figure" artwork before, but we never knew the artist connected with it! The students enjoyed attempting their own versions of the stick figure artwork. Thanks again, Mrs. Evon!

For the most recent genre report, the students read either a biography or autobiography and created a "Pop Bottle Pop Star" of their chosen person. This was truly a chance to let the creativity of the students shine--I loved seeing all of their creations! We also all enjoyed hearing the life stories of these significant people.

Mrs. Evon returned for a November art chat, in which the students examined the fascinating work of M.C. Escher. Then, they attempted their own Escher-inspired works of art. Great job!

As the culminating project in our gravity unit, the students teamed up to design a parachute to slow the effects of gravity for our egg drop...

Success!

Mrs. Evon came in for our October art chat. The students had the opportunity to make acrobats, based off of a famous traveling circus art exhibit!

The students made thank you cards for our brave local firefighters. We had a special visitor from the firehouse come to thank us for the cards in person! He also took the opportunity to remind the students of the importance of changing the batteries in our smoke detectors.

The 5th graders had a blast exploring the solar system at the Planetarium. Here, a few students are getting a little too close to the sun!
