Time Capsule Collage

Dear Colleagues,

I just wanted to share something I did with a fifth grade class that turned
out to be rather interesting. My principal came to me on Monday and asked
if I had some student work to go into a time capsule that the school
district was creating. He said he needed it by Friday. He thought I could
just give him a piece or two that I had saved for the art show. I didn't
think that was appropriate, so I had to think of something quickly! I had
one of my fifth grade classes do a bunch of small drawings (6x9) that
represented anything they felt exemplified 1999. What resulted was a lot of
images representing popular culture. The drawings had lots of text and
pictures dealing with musical groups, clothing styles, television,
computers, video games, people, and current lingo. I cut the drawings into
smaller portions (most of them were made up of a bunch of little drawings
instead of whole compositions) and made a collage. I did the collage work
because we didn't have the time to do it in class. It looks great, and I
think it's perfect for a time capsule! I feel I should call it "Ode to
Pokemon," though, because those images dominate the composition!

Sincerely, Leah
