Fourth graders at Willard South Elementary are diving deep into the Rocks and Minerals Unit with Placeworks teachers Hadley O'Brien and Ashley Fillmer. Students are engaging in learning through art making in many media including fiber arts, collage, relief drawing, and illustrated journaling. Last week students used careful observational skills to examine sedimentary rocks (some as old as 600 million years old!) then used glue and paint to create drawings of fossils.
We are so excited to have the opportunity to work with these bright young students, expanding their skills and knowledge in visual art though the interdisciplinary study of science and nature!
