Night at the Museum

The Sixth Grade team at Lesher IB Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado did a fantastic job helping their students create the "Night at the Museum" project. The project was a culminating event for the sixth grade students following an intensive unit where each student chose an historic figure and then wrote a paper, created a presentation board and wrote a monologue they later performed while dressed up as their person. The result was a wonderful art based learning experience. Art teacher , Ms. Frain added to the experience by having he 6th grade art students create a plate reflecting something about the character the students chose (a la Judy Chicago's Dinner Party. It was a great time! Hats off to Principal Dr, Dodd and the sixth grade team!
