Title: In The Garden Community
Students studied botany, learning major classifications of types of leaves and flowers. They also studied such patternmaking techniques such as bi-lateral and radial symmetry. After a parent painted the base color of blue over the entire cafeteria, students began to transform the space into a garden with large-scale versions of their unique flower designs. Two third grade classes created leaf designs with cut paper. These become the crown of leaves that stretches from the tree trunks painted onto the wall onto the ceiling above the cafeteria tables.
