Created by Pikes Peak Elementary, Colorado Springs, Co
Teacher: Mrs. Montgomery
Theme: American Heroes
Materials and techniques: Our artwork was created using paper and mixed media (including markers, crayons, colored pencil, paper, and glue). The pieces were laminated so they would be more durable.
Did you enjoy this project? My students loved working on their projects because they had family connections to the theme. The project gave them a chance to connect to the community and family members in a new way.
About: My students and fellow staff members have strong family and friend connections to the military, some of whom are currently deployed. This topic hits close to home for our community, so it gives these students a connection and an outlet to say “thank you” to our military for past, present, and future service members.
