3rd Grade
Advocating for Orcas in our Salish Sea
Whale health was explored by examining simulated breath and waste samples of the Orca and working models of an Orca food chain were engineered using recycled materials before the students took on the role of becoming activists, supporting the future of these majestic mammals by designing educational posters.
3rd Grade 2019-2020 School year - Discovering the intricacies of Georgia O’Keeffe
These chalk drawings were done for a TPL exhibit last year that was canceled due to the pandemic. The students worked hard studying the intricacies of a flower through a framing technique mimicking the style of Georgia O’Keeffe through chalk, with emphasis on blending. It seemed fitting to give them recognition for their beautiful efforts in this year’s online exhibit. These students are currently in the fourth grade.
