For the last few weeks, second graders Chanie Latorre and Nevaeh Lockwood have met with art teacher, John Rose, and music teacher, Vanessa Mason, during RTI time to study whales.
In their studies, both students learned about the shape, size, and anatomy of whales as well as interesting facts about the life of whales and how they communicate and survive in the ocean.
With Rose, these students sculpted whales, paying close attention to the shape and coloring of the whales. With Mason, they wrote lyrics to a song about the whales and typed the lyrics into composition software.
Both girls really enjoyed this collaborative project during their RTI time, getting to spend time studying something they were both interested in and getting to present what they learned in new, fun ways. They are definitely looking forward to the next project.
