About: We were given the theme: Stories of the American Revolution. This theme coincided with what the Fourth grade students were studying in Social Studies. Each fourth grade student researched a person and/or event from the American Revolution. In art class students created a drawing based on what they had researched. Forty pieces of art were chosen and four pieces of art were arranged to create a quilt like square.

Clockwise:

Isabella: I made a picture of Sybil Ludington. I picked her because she was very brave and determined. Sybil was 16 years old when she went on a dangerous night time ride. She rose in the rain o warn Americans that the British were coming. She rode over 40 miles. A few years after she died a statue was sculpted of her.

Alekya: My revolutionary was project is on the constitution. I chose that because when we had our book buddy presentation, my group chose the constitution. Did you know that the constitution took over 3 summers to draft and write!

Ava: This is about Paul Revere and his rise to warn the patriots about the British planning an attack against them. In my picture he is riding through muddy swamps and past churches. All he had with him was his horse. He rode in the daytime and the night time. He couldn’t eat or sleep!

Keyra; My artwork shows the two sides during the Revolutionary War. On the left is George Washington and on the right is King George, they are facing off before the battles. A funny fact about George Washington is that he proposed to Martha Custis when he just met her that night.

Kierstin: I chose Paul Revere. My picture is about Paul Revere riding through the forest through the night with his horse, brown beauty, wearing his patriot coat. An interesting fact about Paul Revere was that he rode through the night with two other men named Dr. Samuel Presscott and William Dawes. Also, in the middle of the journey some British soldiers stopped them. The others escaped but Paul wasn’t so lucky. Be he is a hero.

Christina: My artwork is a portrait of King George the lll. In the picture he’s looking at you and waving. Did you know that King George had the same hobby as George Washington? Horseback riding!

Gretchen: I did a picture of the Boston Tea Party. The Boston Tea Party was when the colonists where mad about the tea taxes. So, they dumped tea into the ocean. Did you know that the colonists dressed like Indians / Native Americans so that the British troops thought it was the Indians!

Hussain: My artwork is about Thomas Jefferson. He wrote the declaration of Independence.
