Lessons I would not do in the near future...my first year, I was in a
building with the huge picture windows. I thought it would be great to
study Matisse and have my 4th graders create these beautiful stained glass
windows. Well..the project took almost three months....(not all of it my
fault!) and when we started using heat in the building, the windows would get
condensation on the inside and the colored film/celophane we used started to
fall off before the kids even got it all finished!!! It looked
beautiful....but was a disaster!!!
Another lesson I would not do....papier mache masks...i did this with a small
group of students after school, and there was such a mess....i stick to paris
craft from now on!!!
Anyway....there are a couple of disasters....live and learn!!!
