Notable American Studies

March 9, 2021 | Chris Gasca

During this term, the students have been learning about Notable Americans in social studies as well as in art class. They have been studying in-depth many important figures in our American history.

In these pictures, you can see examples of what our second-grade students have been working on during their art project time. They are researching, writing about, and making puppets with artifacts about their Notable Americans. In these pictures, you see sculpted puppets with clothing made out of felt, buttons, ribbons, and so on of Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King Jr, Alexander Calder, Helen Keller, Julia Morgan, and a few others.

Whether they were known for being great inventors, painters, Justice seekers, great athletes, or people that decided to be the first to do something amazing. One thing stands true for all of them. They all decided to step out of the norm and dared to be different, tirelessly following their dreams and the things that they believed to be true to them.  During this season the second grade chooses to honor all of these great men and women that helped make America the great nation that it is today. Thank you Notable Americans.
