What are FIFTH Grade students doing in the library?
What Makes a Book a Caldecott Winner?
In order to answer this question we will need to study; aspects of the award, different types of art media, history of the award. We will need to read LOTS of Caldecott winners in order to get a sense of what certain librarians might look for in an award winner.
The Caldecott Award and Honors will be announced on Monday, February 2, 2015 at the American Library Association's Midwinter Conference.
Fifth grade students have been studying POINTILISM and specifically George Seurat's painting Sunday in the Park of la Grande Jatte. We will be using this painting as a sounding board to study parody and using multiple perspectives to view art, literature, movies, and other cultural images.
Students are embarking on a month long research and website creation project.
