2nd and 3rd grade students are learning about art from around the World. First we discussed the continents and colored and labeled a map of the earth.
Our first country that we are learning about is HAITI. We were so lucky to have "Mr. J " come to our classroom to discuss his country and bring in some artwork from children in Haiti as well as artwork that he created. it was so interesting and informative. It is so important for my students to appreciate other cultures and be understanding of our differences. Herrera students were amazed to see pictures that he brought in of the daily life of children in Haiti and to see pictures of the aftermath of the tragic earthquake. After our project, we will be sending some of our artwork to the Haitian students that Mr. J works with!!!
Thank you Mr. J!!!!
