Ezra Jack Keats comes to Kindergarten

IMG_1725

EDS Kindergarten students spent three weeks in January reading Ezra Jack Keats books, learning about his artwork style, and making collages of their own. We learned about characters and settings. We saw the main character Peter grow up from a little boy in The Snowy Day to a teenager in Pet Show. We drew a pet and gave it a blue ribbon. We also had a pet show of our own with stuffed animals that we brought from home. To culminate this unit, we went to the Morris Museum of Art. Our tour guides taught us about primary and secondary colors, line, shapes, and depth. We also got to make sculptures using clay, paper, and chenille stems. It was fun trying to make them as tall and balanced as we could! We thank the museum guides and teachers, the parents who chaperoned, our bus drivers, and Mr. and Mrs. Grogan who sponsor a membership for EDS classes to visit the museum. We had a wonderful time!
