First grade students joined together to declare the arrival of spring! Blooming daffodils in the Outdoor Classroom inspired this mural. Children shared paint and space, working side by side in small groups on this collaborative effort, practicing valuable social skills while cooperating and conversing during their process. Science will be integrated into the mural as roots are added below the flower line, clouds put in the sky, and insects fly and crawl around. Surrounding this beautiful masterpiece are poems written about spring by the children.
