Congratulations Grade 4’s – You created an awesome wetlands panel!!!

We have  finished our Saskatchewan wetlands panel!!  Below are pictures of parts of our time exploring art together. As you scroll down, you will see the assembly of the large panel. I did the background, the students did everything else. The students created so much art that we were able to make another smaller panel which will go up in their classroom. When I took them the completed panels, they were amazed at what a great job they did. Each student showed the rest of the class the parts they had contributed. We celebrated with fruit, jello and gummy worms. I had a wonderful time learning from each and every student, and Mrs. Burianyk-Noey. Thanks to the Balcarres Community School Council for making this possible.

If you would like to read about  what we did earlier in this time together, please see the blog posts  Dear Grade 4’s and Translucence.

Not everything could fit on the large panel so this smaller panel will go in the grade 4 classroom. It features turtles, a fish, a snake, a frog and some butterflies and clouds
