The class has learned so much about the varied and rich country of India this month. As a culminating activity, they worked in pairs on Indian STEAM themed projects.
Projects included: Creating the Flag of India using Pixie, using Zometools to build the Taj Mahal, composing Indian music using Garageband on an iPad, creating a peacock out of Legos, and making a Cricket stick out of K'nex tools.
Mrs. Indira Srinivasan's Class Visit
The students were very fortunate for Sanjay's grandmother, Indira, to come visit the class and share her knowledge of India first hand. She told the class about her own education as a young child, read a story about the god, Genesha, shared the fun of the festivals of Diwali and Holi, showed them how to make Rangoli art pictures, and tempted them with homemade Indian sweet treats. Here are pictures of our time with Mrs. Srinivasan.
|Namaste, Mrs. Srinivasan!|
HCA Buddy Family Event
Our final HCA Family event was lots of fun. Each child received a Holy Child beach ball and their "family members" signed it. What a nice keepsake for the summer.
