    We began this year in Lower School Visual Arts with a guest artist residency with Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre in grades 1-4, with related costume and mask projects in Pre-School and Kindergarten.  Children created puppets and masks to celebrate the opening of the new Upper School building, and all the learning that is going to happen in the beautiful new spaces. 
    Pre-schoolers are introduced to Minnesota animals, and they made loons, racoons, and deer.  Kindergarten is learning about animal groups and finding out about continents on the map, so they made animals from North America, Australia, Africa, and Asia.  First graders made fish because they are learning about the ocean this year, Second graders are studying Biomes, so they made groups of animals that live in different environments.  Third graders made amazing bird puppets to go with their science curriculum, and fourth graders made robots because they are learning about physics and machines.
