It was a busy month in The Kolver Family Library. The 7th grade used the TIDES Garage (and all the goodies it contains) to work on their joint History- and Science-based Identity Unit projects. Interactive displays, sculptures, videos—you name the idea and there was a 7th grader creating it.
Ms. Gibba's 6th graders were also buzzing around this month, working on green screen or whiteboard animation videos inspired and informed by creation myths from around the world.
Finally, our JKers spent their library time in February studying the concept of "peace." They read the book What Does Peace Feel Like?, a collection of poems from around the world sharing what peace feels smells, and tatstes like to different people. JK students then thought about what peace feels, smells, or tastes like to them, created pictures of their answer, and then used Chatterpix to bring that picture to life.
The entire JK class then traced their hand holding up a peace sign and decorated their tracing with their favorite colors. The words "Peace is a Human Right" were added to this banner and it now hangs in the hallway outside the library.
