November- December Fourth Grade
The 4th Graders have also completed an Art Project inspired by the Tinga Tinga art of Africa. The artist Sarange who does Tinga Tinga and Masai art made some incredible drawings and the students used his inspiring designs to create their own family portrait.
I had my students create a self portrait in one hour based on the style of Amedeo Modigliani. They had to use analogous colors between their shirt and background color.
Fourth Graders learn about natures recyclers. The Scarab or Dung Beetle is also a recycler as it recycle waste of other animals. As students learned the Dung Beetles save the US Cattle Industry about $300 million a year in disposing of cattle waste. Students did an amazing job.
