A Poppy Is To Remember

November 4th
Today we talked about Remembrance Day.  I read the students the book A Poppy Is To Remember and then we had a discussion about what their thoughts were about Remembrance Day.  Students then wrote their thoughts and ideas in their journals. In the afternoon we made poppies.

Here is the Poppy art project.
First we used the spray boxes to "spray paint" the background black.  Next, students painted coffee filters red,  these later formed the petals of the poppy. The final touch was gluing on real poppy seeds in the center of the finished project.  Scroll to the bottom for a picture of all of the projects on the bulletin board.
