Students in the second-grade classes have the opportunity to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly. Students make diagrams of the life cycle and they watch real live caterpillers change from a caterpiller to cacoon to a butterfly; then watch as the butterflies are released. Many insects go through either complete or incomplete metamorphosis. The butterfly is an example of an insect that undergoes complete metamorphosis. This type of life cycle is marked by significant changes in the shape and structure of the insect.
Students in Judy Luther's 3rd-grade class had the opportunity to make Zentangle pictures. Zentangle is a focused and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It aids in the development of fine motor skills and it is also calming. The best part is that it turns out looking great! The students are fantastic Zentangle Artists!
Art City Elementary school has a student council. Each year students in the sixth-grade have the opportunity to plead their case in front of their peers as to why they would be the best fit for the student council. Before they get to the week of posters, students decide in their classrooms who they want to represent them. The students nominate and vote for nine students in their class, after the class picks, the teachers make reccomendations and the students get permission from their parents.
This year's theme is "What is your Story?" Reflections is a program that encourages students from all grades and abilities to be creative. The work is then submitted, and cosidered by judges in six categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. Students may enter one in each category. The Deadline for Art City Elementary is October 14, 2016. For rules and entry forms visit 2www.utahpta.org/reflections.
