Greek Mythology Shields and Portrait

A few weeks ago I posted about some third and fourth grade students who have spent some time working with me during their iBlock for six weeks.  We read the Lightning Thief as well as many Greek myths.  Our final activity was to make shields that represented a Greek god.  This bulletin board has gotten attention from every grade....and led to some great discussions in Kindergarten and third grade.  It is truly great to get the opportunity to work with small groups...and I also love that by having a multi- age classroom that there is an authentic audience for the results!  

Next year I think I might try to have an interactive bulletin board so that students can connect across grade levels about their learning!  For now,please enjoy these works of art and displays of thinking, learning and connecting with  literature!
