School is so creative and imaginative that we make giant sculptures out of art materials.First it was the 2007 tree, the 2008 dragon, the 2009 bird, the 2010 lion, 2011 elephant, the 2012 giraffe and now… the 2013 Kangaroo with its own Joey. The kangaroo
is made with chicken wire for its body and a carpet tube for its long neck and tail. Then three 5th
grade students (Maria D., Lucia D., Samantha A.) created the baby Joey with packaging balloons for its head,colored the eye and nose, and got
cardboard for the body, feet and hands. They drew paws on the hands and feet
using a black sharpie marker. So, what do you think next year’s will be?
By Samantha A., Lucia D., Maria D. We built a baby Joey out of brown
construction paper, cardboard and other supplies like sharpies, markers and
tape.We made a 3 dimensional head and a flat body of cardboard. The baby Joey
has a hook on the back of him to make him hold on to his mom's paw. A special
day will come where it will be baby Joey's birthday! We are working on things to
make Joey's birthday a special day, it is his 4-month birthday party soon. We hope you can all attend Joey's birthday party (Joey does too!). It will
be a fun day for Joey he’ll have on a party hat just to celebrate!
