HISTORY, RESEARCH, AND ART, OH MY!
3rd grade kicked off their community service project with a trip downtown to visit the Regional Arts Center and Perot Theatre. "Sharing Our History" is a collaborative community history & art public tour project. The students are working with myself and Dr. Becky Black at TRAHC to learn about historical research methods, art history, Texarkana history, and public speaking.
The lessons will result in a public tour of the Regional Arts Center and Perot Theatre buildings downtown Texarkana. The tours will be open to the parents, TRAHC staff and the general public. The student tour guides (our 3rd graders) will be serving their community by learning about Texarkana history and sharing it with our community.
Public Tour Dates:
Students used both sides of their brains while learning and constructing 3D shapes!
Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!
During our science unit study about Animals and Their Habitats, these talented 3rd graders put their talent where their hands are!! Using recycled items from home, students created either a paddlefish, alligator, or turtle. These art pieces have been entered into the Recycled Art Contest, hosted by the Shreveport Aquarium.
