International Studies Banners

Mrs. Slats, Mrs. A and I had the pleasure of our principal, Mrs. Guertin, asking us to work on a project with her for the school. We are an International Studies school and each grade level deeply investigates a specific culture, time period or geographical area over the course of the year. In art class we try to extend this focus into our projects.
The students created banners for their respective classrooms to portray what they have been learning about their International Studies focus. They were able to pull from what they learned in their homeroom classes or what they learned in art class to create their image. They each received a banner triangle made out of fabric and recreated their image out of fabric scraps and permanent markers.
It was great to see how they tried to correctly refashion what they learned and listening to them combine knowledge from both classes!!! I sure love it when it all comes together!!!!! Thank you again Mrs. Guertin!
