Title: A Collaboration of our Favorite Parks

Teacher: Mrs. Frohlich, along with Ranger Scott Rector, National Park Service

Theme: Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. What a park means to me.

Materials and techniques: Students used printmaking to create a visual representation of what a park means to them. Students each carved their own rubber stamps which they used to print on a strip of fabric. Each student printed their fabric strip with two layers of ink to create contrast in their prints. We then wove all the fabric strips together to create a single work of art representing what a park means to us.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, very much so!

About: Ranger Scott Rector from the National Park Service in Hyde Park, New York, helped inspire the kids by visiting and discussing information about the National Park Service with them. We discussed which parks and National Parks we already knew, and each student thought about which kind of park they find important. We wanted to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of our National Parks!
