Moving on to Africa (3rd grade):
This was a giant representation of Africa made of tiny pieces of magazine
Jarem next to the hut
Tessa next to her African mask, writing, and some sort of African rug
Forest Floor was 4th grade:
This was by far the most popular hall because it had moss-like cover along both sides of the hall with critters made of clay, paper mache, or etc by the kids.
Another big draw to this hall was the real cockatoo!
As you can see, Tessa and Jarem were fascinated with the bird. We kept losing track of them only to find them back watching the bird again.
This giant US flag covered much of ones of the halls
Jesikah's honor choir performed 5 songs in the gym. They practice every Thursday morning before school. They have to try-out and be in 4th or 5th grade to be part of honor choir. They sounded excellent.
The last song they performed was "Surfin USA" which they added a lot of choreography to. After the kids sang, the principal had a surprise. She called all the teachers up to dance with her to the song and the kids sang it one more time. The kids LOVED that!
Jesikah's music clay model. On the paper she said that she made a music model because music touches her in a special way.
This is a very poor photograph of Jesikah's shadow painting. It was beautiful.
The painting in the green is Jesikah's painting of the "bubble people" style by a famous artist. The helmet is floating behind.
Jesikah's Canadian pamphlet and passport

Down the Kindergarten & 1st grade hall they did Australia:
This giant sea turtle had a different item glued on each section of his shell
Man-o-wars made with coffee filters and crepe paper...they were so pretty
And lots of Nemos
One of my favorites were the fish made with old CD's, tissue paper, and the children making fish faces
Of course, kookaburras
These snakes were very colorful. Some of them were made with plasic Easter eggs
It was an enjoyable night...a great reminder that we have a very bright future ahead of us with these creative and talented children!
