This year, the fourth grade students helped coordinate and run a remarkable State Fair! Both the girls’ and boys’ state fairs included the singing of patriotic songs to start off the night. In addition to researching and writing incredible papers on each of their designated states and making trifolds summarizing key details about their states, each child used acrylic paint on canvas to create an image of a fruit or vegetable that is indigenous to their state inside the shape of their state. Special thanks to Judi Dimbert, computer science teacher, for helping students learn many different advanced features of Google suite throughout this endeavor. In addition, Dimbert led the students in learning about skills and techniques in art when using acrylic paint on canvas. The children greatly enjoyed this interdisciplinary project and developed a greater appreciation for the USA.
