Title: Contradiction

Teacher: Mr. Baker

Theme: Death Valley National Park

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint on canvas.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, very much.

About: The national park I chose was Death Valley National Park. The bright colors of the landscape made me want to paint it. I love the different colors of the clouds and the pink dunes. I think my painting was successful. It took me a while to learn how to do the transition of light to dark in the dunes and mountains, but near the end I finally learned how to do that smooth transition. My favorite part of my painting is the clouds. I feel they add a lot of color to the painting.

Title: Acadia National Park

Teacher: Mr. Baker

Theme: Springtime

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint on canvas.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes.

About: I chose Acadia national park which is located on Maine’s Mount Desert Island, because of its special features and how I would love to visit the park. The special features of it consist of its diversity of landscape, there are placid lakes and ponds. What attracted me to this specific place is how large and wide open its lake is and how beautiful it looks in springtime.
It took about two weeks to complete my painting and within those two weeks, I’ve enjoyed having to paint the lake and rocks. Something I learned is having to paint rocks edges softer with less texture the further they are away from the viewer. What wasn’t easy was painting the rocks simply because it had to look realistic. Overall, I appreciate and enjoyed painting Acadia National Park, it gives insight to how it looks and it’s a place I plan to visit.

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint on canvas

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, really enjoyed the theme and research.

About: I chose Zion National Park because I really like night skies. My painting is a silhouette. I chose this scene because I really like the purple colors of the night sky. I enjoyed painting this because I was comfortable in outlining the rocks and representing proportional sizes. This place is gorgeous because of the rocks that are everywhere. The stars seem really enhanced and beautiful because of the high altitude.

Theme: Glacier National Park

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint on canvas.

About: My painting is of Glacier National Park in Montana. I found this park to be more interesting than the others because of the way the light hits the water over the mountains.

The sky went from orange to a pink, and I changed the scene from fall to winter, and what I thought it would look like in winter.

Title: Wedding on Rocky Mountain Planet With Trampoline Ground

Teacher: Mrs. Pomeroy

Theme: Harsh Environments and Animal Adaptations

Materials and techniques: Fabric and embroidery stitches, springs and tempera paint.

Did you enjoy this project? It was interesting. There are so many cool stuff in the world. It helped me learn to sew and be creative. It is harder to sew than I thought. My taco turned out perfect, better than I thought. I felt like I was included and played a part.

About: This planet has a rocky environment with a springy trampoline ground. There is a wedding, they eat flowers and love warm weather. There is a spider/bird animal with wings in case it gets bored of jumping on the tramp. There is a bouncy yellow snake that turns things into gold and eats them. My animal is a flying rainbow taco. My taco adapts by switching the layers of ingredients to the front or side like armor. My bear is a self-defense teddy bear that adapts by drinking acid rain and eating people.

Title: Grassy Lakes and Rivers with Breathable Water Planet

Teacher: Mrs. Pomeroy

Theme: Extreme Environments and Animal Adaptations

Materials and techniques: Fabric and embroidery stitches, and tempera paint.

Did you enjoy this project? I felt good about it. I learned a lot about animal adaptations. I think it was worth doing.

About: We made up an environment that has breathable water so you don’t have to hold your breath. There are rivers carving through orange peach canyons and lakes surrounded by grassland and beautiful flowers. There are a lot of animals and some invisible women with pretty dresses. One has a mermaid tail to swim with, but looks like a cat with paws to walk on land, and a unicorn horn. There is an octopus named Harry with one eye and three arms. It eats any kind of fish. That mer-cat better watch out! One animal is a mix between a komodo dragon and a black panther. It can live on land and in water. It is a fierce carnivore with extendable claws, that if any animal faced it, it would most likely become extinct! But the most feared animal of all is the Squillmer! Because it is very fast to sling microscopic poisonous spikes from its fur. With its’ incredible eyesight Beware! There are 100,000 of them on this planet.

Title: Pink Swirling Gas with Rainbow, Puffy Clouds, Acid Rain and Snow

Teacher: Mrs. Pomeroy

Theme: Alien Extreme Environments and Animal Adaptations

Materials and techniques: Fabric collage and embroidery stitches.

Did you enjoy this project? We thought that this was amazing to learn about animal adaptations. It did take some time to come up with our idea, but everything went as planned. It was fun to learn how to sew, but hard, and fun to figure out how to make a fitting background for our imaginary environment.

About: Pac Man monster lives in polluted air and acid water. There is a turtle with a unicorn horn sewed onto the environment. This turtle just swims in the pink mist, and uses its magical horn when predators come and try to get it. I feel great about my choice of doing this magical creature.

Title: Tropical Planet with Zero Gravity Defying Dome

Teacher: Mrs. Pomeroy

Theme: Harsh Environments and Animal Adaptation

Materials and techniques: Fabric collage and embroidery stitches, tempera paint and lamination film.

Did you enjoy this project? I think it was challenging and could have had more help on the sewing. I learned to tie knots in the string of the needle. It was hard cutting the fabric. I had to get it perfect! It took four weeks to make all of it. Try it and have fun doing it!

About: Our tropical planet has zero gravity. In order for life to survive they built a gravity dome, but the trees and animals still float and swim through the air. Watch out! They eat anything that are not of its kind! The tropical trees have long leaves to soak up the sun.
The water is warm and there are swampy areas. Some animals stay in the water as much as possible and eat creatures smaller than itself, and have feet like paddles. Some animals are heavy so it can stay down on the ground having four arms and four legs. It is tough so it can survive. Some animals are small and blend into the ground. They live by volcanoes but doesn’t burn in the lava. He eats lava rock and is mostly made out of lava rock. He doesn’t have a mouth, but has a mustache that can catch his enemies. One snake’s adaptation is flying, and has the ability to control its own gravity. It looks like a banana boa. One creature is a furry ball and it can bounce around! Another creature can walk on land with spikes on its feet and hands to keep it on the ground. Or it can swim in floating bubbles in the air with webbed hands for swimming and gills to breathe. I made a taco named Rebel. He is the color of a tortilla and is woolly like a sheep. There is nothing he cannot adapt to. He doesn’t have legs because he can float, and doesn’t have eyes because he uses echolocation, like whales and bats. His species guards the presidents of our planet. Nothing can get past it! Rebel is the coolest pet ever!

Did you enjoy this project? I think my world is a little different than I imagined it, but it is still awesome. It worked out and looked very good.

About: The environment of our world was a crystal world with a basketball war going on. There were big diamond buildings and a fury court with dangerous spikes around it. Disco cheerleaders route for the teams. There is a party all the time and we eat LOTS of glitter! And loves to cheer on the teams, and when the home team plays guests, we have special powers that help the team WIN! There is a mascot which uses camouflage to hide from the opposing team. There is Princess Peacock and a feathery peacock with eyes to see the wars. I wanted to have no war. I wanted it to be kind and nice with no war.

Title: Desert Landscape Where a River Feeds a Grassland

Teacher: Mrs. Pomeroy

Theme: Extreme Environments and Animal Adaptations

Materials and techniques: Fabric and embroidery stitches, and tempera paint.

Did you enjoy this project? We enjoyed learning about all the habitats. It was fun to use our own imagination, to make funny animals that combine together. I felt good about the project and I think it looks good. I felt that it was kind of hard, but pretty easy.

About: We painted the sky a dark blue mixed with a turquoise color. We invented our own creatures like a horse mixed with a bee. It survives by drinking from the river and collecting nectar from flowers in the environment to make honey. My animal can handle high elevation. A little devil whose wings hold water. If it runs out it can go to the river and dip its wings in the water. Flying prairie dogs that live in a hole and come to the river to drink. Cat / porcupines are fast and agile, which dig with its paws and is able to protect itself with spikes. The devil cat king made his home on the arch. Lots of the animals eat bugs.

Title: Colorful Pom-Pom Candyland

Teacher: Mrs. Pomeroy

Theme: Extreme Environments and Animal Adaptations

Materials and techniques: Fabric and embroidery stitches and tempera paint.

Did you enjoy this project? We ended up only putting on two or three because we ran out of room. They were hard to sew on but we did it anyway because we all liked it. I hope we can create and sew again soon! In my opinion it was a great idea!

About: Our environment was a colorful, bright and happy candy land. I made the root-beer volcano. Candy bugs come out of the volcano, and had to adapt to the heat and fizz! I made the candy flowers. They had to adapt because their roots eat candy and not water! Shape shifting animals change color and size to fit into its hiding place. See the chocolate monkey named Choco? Plenty of candy for him to eat! There’s a bunch of jaw breaker bugs with pink little wings that fly high so nothing can eat them. If they fly too high, they get burnt by the lemon-head sun! If they fly too low they get eaten. So they develop a special sense so they know the perfect height for flight. There is a nice monster who is very annoying, like a salesman. He survives by a feather on his back. When he waves it in the air he blends in with the environment. There is even a candy-cane vacuum! The funniest adaptation is the pink fluffy unicorn who adapts to all that candy by going to the dentist 50 times a year!

Did you enjoy this project? Yes.

About: For this piece I wanted to focus, specifically, on the extreme environments in our solar system. The squares each represent a celestial body, ordered from closest to the sun to the farthest. Though most of these environments are unlikely to harbor or support life, I tried to make a guess as to what a native organism may look like there anyway. I chose nine specific planemos for the organisms. The first are the four terrestrial planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth (sporting a familiar species), and Mars, and since I couldn’t envision an organism on/in a gas giant, I chose a moon from each of those, with Europa (orbiting Jupiter), Titan (orbiting Saturn), Titania (Uranus), and Triton (Neptune). Lastly, partially to represent the millions of small icy bodies past Neptune in the Kuiper Belt, but mostly for sentimental value, I chose Pluto for the final square.

Title: Untamed

Teacher: Mrs. Montierth

Theme: Plants with animal characteristics

Materials and techniques: For our art piece we used ink and linoleum for print making.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes! We really enjoyed seeing it all come together and working to make it look complete.

About: We stuck with an idea to draw a type of plant with different animal features. As you can see, some of the different parts look like a plant, but if you look closely you can see the shape of an animal. We really had to use our imagination to come up with each individual piece, and make it come together as one.

Title: Rattle Snake

Teacher: Mrs. Erickson

Theme: The Extremes of Alien Life Forms

Materials and techniques: We used melted crayons to paint the picture. Then we crumpled up the crayon painting. We smeared on watered down paint as a fabric dye. We used an iron and newspaper to lift off all the crayon. It is called batik because it is dyed fabric and a wax resist.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes. This was a fun project.

About: Our project is about a rattle snake. We chose the snake because it lives in a really extreme desert. It gets so hot and so cold in the desert. But the snake survives because it knows when to come out and get sun and when to hide because it is too hot. An alien could learn how to be able to survive the really hot and cold temperature. Plus the snake has a hidden weapon, its fangs, to help survive.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes. This was a fun project.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes. This was a fun project.

About: We picked the alligator because it is a fast animal. It can run fast on the land and it can swim really fast. The alligator has to be fast so that it surprises the animal that it wants to eat. We think that aliens who want to survive need to think about being fast. The aliens need to exercise a lot to be strong. Kind of like people who swim and run to get strong. The aliens need to be strong in two things, not just one.

About: The crab lives in the ocean and eats junk that no one else wants. The crab can also live on the land. The crab is really fast and knows how to hide. If an alien wanted to be good at surviving, they should be like a crab. Eat the stuff no one wants, be fast, and hide when you are in danger.

About: We chose the humming bird because it is so small. It has a long beak that can suck out nectar from a flower. We like the humming bird and how it can survive on flowers. Aliens can learn from the humming bird that it is okay to be small. They can also learn to drink from beautiful flowers.

Theme summary: In Massachusetts in the 1600s, Roger Williams thought there was a better way to do things. Williams felt the government could control what people did, but not what they thought or believed. The government got its power from the people. For the people in Massachusetts, these ideas were ‘new and dangerous’ and Roger Williams told he must leave. So he did, and in 1636 founded Rhode Island on these very same dangerous ideas.
