Title: Thank You For Your Service. You Are Our Heroes.

Theme: American Heroes

Materials and techniques: We used crayons, colored pencils and markers to create our figures. For the background we used acrylic paint, sponges, brushes and a lot of ‘Mod Podge’!

Did you enjoy this project? Yes

About: We tried to honor our veterans and military personnel through the pictures we created. While the younger students made our soldiers, airmen, sailors, marines, coast guard, National Guard and reserve personnel, our older students created the backgrounds for our heroes. It was a wonderful learning experience for us all and a way to remember just how thankful we are for everyone in our armed forces.
