Students explore how our actions create our character and they share their words of wisdom. Elementary students reflected on some of the actions the character took in their favorite books. Students in grade 5 worked with author, John Coy, on developing their characters and in art class with Karla Donohue to create 3-D representations of their characters. Students in grade 4 worked with Mike Scoville in the Elementary Library to create an image of a real or imaginary hero using transfer plates. In their artist statement they reflect on how the actions of their hero do good in the world. Students in high school art found a quote they liked or they wrote their own and create a piece of art related to the quote. Some high school students worked with artist and author, Jill Harding, to create their words of wisdom.
