Tea and Flags

Grades 6 and 8 have just finished up some colorful projects despite our long, gray spring.

Sixth graders were inspired by the Nigeria celebration of spring known as Ebune. They painted fabric and then carved traditional symbols of power and rebirth from rubber stamp material and printed them on the painted banners.

Meanwhile, eighth graders were working on fabulous crazy teapots. All pots needed to be functional and were tested at a real tea party once the project was complete.  Can you find the Empire State teapot? Or the tentacle teapots (there are 2)?
