Wow! Hard to believe that we just kicked off our final units of the year, but it’s true! We are working on everything from famous art reproductions to creating reduction prints.

In the K-2 classes we are asking questions about habitats and hopefully starting next week we will be starting to design our very own ladybug habitats. First on the list is making our own plaster cast planters/pots to house our creations, which is where we need your help!

If you have any old plastic containers laying around such as large yogurt containers, cottage cheese containers, containers from dips any of these will be very helpful in our casting process!  Thank you!
