The final country in our study is Russia. We learned that Russia is so big that it has 11 time zones! The architecture is quite unique.
Using step-by-step instructions, the students drew their own versions of Russian architecture.
We also learned about Faberge eggs--intriquitely decorated eggs made with the finest materials that often held small treasures.
Then, we learned about the famous Russian nesting dolls or Babushka dolls. Using a guided drawing video, the students learned how to draw their own Russian nesting dolls. They colored them, cut them out, and attached them to a toilet paper roll so they could stand up.
We learned about two different Russian artists:
Wassily Kandinsky using circles and Kazimir Malevich using rectangles.
Last week, after much preparation, the students were tour guides on a trip to Israel!
Thank you Mrs. Sloane-Brenner for your dedication and hard work!
A standing ovation was definitely deserved!
