Happy New Year!

This past week my 5th graders investigated Chinese plum tree paintings.  They got to use some pretty unconventional painting methods, including blowing on the black paint with straws and using their fingers to print the blossoms, which they were excited about.  They also designed their own chop with Model Magic clay.  We always seem to have a lot of fun learning about Chinese New Year celebrations. Have a great year of the Dragon!
