When I visited Mathews Elementary School in Austin last week, I was bowled over by what the students in Lauren Fox’s third grade class had created.
“After studying symbolism, students created illustrations inspired by a section of text from Laugh With The Moon. The visuals demonstrate students’ understanding and interpretation through colors and symbols. Each piece fit together to tell Clare’s story.”
Click on the thumbnails of each picture for a complete explanation of the symbol. Cool! (This is the kind of assignment that makes me remember how much classroom teachers rock!)
