The fourth graders at Wileman Elementary School had a challenge of historic proportions before them.
The culminating project following the study of the various regions of the United States was to create a float. In celebration of the rich heritage and emblems of their state, students designed model floats for the parade.
“Individual students had spent time researching their assigned state and deciding how best to depict it. Lots of research went into the projects, and students enjoyed sharing what they’d learned with their classmates at Wileman Elementary School,” said fourth-grade teacher Cathy Theobald.
The children researched and designed an original shoebox float of their state and their artwork was representative of both the state and the art that is prominent in the region of the country where their state is located.
