After being introduced to animation through Keith Haring's flip books and Walt Disney animation studios, third graders then created their own flip book animations. I think the results are aaaamazing! :) Check out what Mrs. Floyd's class came up with.

Second graders studied the Adinkra printmaking process of the Ashanti in Ghana, Africa. We learned about the symbolism and function of Adinkra cloth, and then created our own symbols / stamps for the prints. We also got to explore a giant traveling map of Africa on loan from National Geographic at the end of the lesson.

My House by Alexis
My House. My house is a rainbow. The tree is brown and green. I love my house because I like my tree. I played when I was little.
The Taj Mahal by Serena
This is me and the Taj Mahal. It's beautiful here! The Taj Mahal is white. I used to go there when I was little. The Taj Mahal was built long, long ago. The Taj Mahal is the tallest building in India.
Paul's awesome presentation of Leaving the Atmosphere. Too cute.
