Did you enjoy this project? Yes, the students worked on this project during recess and after school. They discussed their ideas and then they went to work. As their art teacher, I enjoyed seeing their excitement in knowing that the work they were creating was going to be displayed in a national historic site and also used to wrap The Dream Rocket. (These students’ families come from 5 different countries.)

About: The patriots and the traitors were fighting each other when the dove of peace flew over. When they saw the dove they decided to stop fighting and work out their differences. So everyone could enjoy freedom.
