4th Grade: Case Closed

4th Grade has been working for weeks to create bamboo paintings and clay name seals. Finally, their hard work has paid off. The bamboo paintings were completed, and with a final stamp of the name seal, the case was closed.

For the couple of days before winter break, we did a small project about poetry and how it tied into the art of China. I had each student write a poem about winter in the same style that Chinese artists would have used. Their options were 4 lines with 5 syllables each or 4 lines with 7 syllables each. With the poems done, they then painted a picture to match the poem.
