Today, Ms. Dillon’s first graders continued their work with local artist, Shinji Turner-Yamamoto. Students have been watching their seeds sprout during the last few weeks, and today, they built structures for their seeds. Students used special paper straws and worked very hard to construct their designs. This experience ties in with the NASA lunar plant chamber challenge which is taking place in the Discovery Lab, as well as with their plant science unit. Enjoy the pictures below! Stay tuned as the structures will be on display at the Arlington Arts Center beginning April 8th to May 3rd.
