The third and fourth graders ventured with Mrs. Burns and Miss Fay to the Florence Griswold Museum this week where they participated in three activities that focused on visual literacy. Each activity exposed students to developing their artistic vocabulary, learning – to – look strategies, as well as, artist tools and techniques. Students explored the art galleries, Florence Griswold's historic home and then spent time painting outside with Connecticut's Lieutenant River as their landscape. After a picnic lunch, students were then issued digital cameras to take photographs to capture specifics from the Wee Faerie Village. After this trip students were able to apply what they have learned during their day at the museum,  keyboarding and library class, and language arts instruction. Up next; utilize the images to create narratives. Congratulations Anthony, Claire, Ekaterina, Griffin and Isabella on your hard work and willingness to dive into new experiences.

A big thank you goes out to Mrs. Bean for her digital expertise, Ms. Fay for her input and time, the educators at the museum who made this possible and to Mrs. Harris for her presence on this trip.
