This project was inspired by Denise M. Logan’s book, “Dynamic Art Projects For Children”.

Jabuti The Tortoise

Second grade artists have created a new work of art based on a book by Gerald McDermott, “Jabuti the Tortoise”.  Jabuti is a tortoise from the Amazon Rain Forest who loves to play tricks on his friends.  Second graders enjoyed the story, but the best part was creating their own tortoises!

Amazing Amazon Blue Morpho Butterflies

Georgetown first grade artists know lots of cool facts about South America’s Amazon rain forest!  Did you know it rains an inch every day in the Amazon rain forest?  And that the trees grow very, very tall and an amazing number of different creatures inhabit the rain forest – including beautiful Blue Morpho Butterflies!
