On Monday, May 6, students in the Lower School joined students from over 600 schools, in more than 14 countries on four different continents, in celebrating the Global Day of Design. This day was created to inspire students to create, make and build.
Our students created original airplanes, litter collectors, games, piñatas, pop-up cards and much more:Ms. Maione's First Grade class learned about the characteristics of major landforms, then designed multimedia depictions of these landforms using a variety of two- and three-dimensional materials. Groups were divided by landform types, with each group actively collaborating on designing their dioramas and creating the different features they would represent.
Expanding on their recent studies, Second Graders designed their own Arctic animals using all kinds of soft forms, cloth, cotton balls, pipe cleaners and other ornamental materials for facial features.
