Caldecott Quilts January 21, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 8:36 am

2nd graders recently finished an interdisciplinary project between Library and Art.  They learned about Caldecott Medals and how they are awarded to books.  In visual journals, the students drew their favorite scenes as a way to record which book they had read.  In Art, after learning about Faith Ringgold, students chose a sketch from their journals to translate into a story quilt.

The story quilts are on display in the main lobby, outside the Library, and soon outside the Art Studio.
