School Project

In school the twins have been studying about Maryland Indians. So their teacher decided that making them do a project would be good for them. She decided that a diorama would be a great project for 4th graders. So off to Wal-Mart we went to get all the stuff for Ethan and Ian's project. They wanted some play-do for the house they were building and of course we just need brown, black and green. Did they have those colors in individual packaging, of course not! So we had to buy the mini package that had 10 different colors in them and I had to buy two, one for each. Then it was on to the craft sticks, glue, and construction paper. Ethan and Ian worked really hard on their diorama. I do have to say that their projects turned out pretty good and Grant even joined in on the fun! They both got A's on the diorama. But I do have to say that I am glad that it over....for now... I am sure there are plenty more projects to come!

Ahhh, 4th grade projects! I remember making a covered wagon out of construction paper and cardboard full of the things that you would find in a covered wagon on the Oregon Trail. Or the patchwork pillow. Oh and who can forget the western town made out of burnt matches!

I hope Ethan and Ian have fond memories of the 4th grade like I do! :)

I loved 4th grade and Mrs. Wilson! We also made a small rug out of yarn. I think my mom still has my patchwork pillow at home. I had forgotten about the wagon. Mom and I were talking about this the other day and I knew we did something else but I couldn't remember what it was. Thanks for reminding me!!
