Olympic Fever - Winter Olympics 2010

The students at DCES caught the Olympic bug! Excitement was in the air during this historical time. Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd graders created their own Gold Olympic Medals! Using clay, and their own shoe, students pressed the pattern from underneath their shoe onto a piece of clay to form a medallion shape. Each medal was individual depending on the pattern underneath each students own shoe. The students also created a crayon and watercolor resist painting to commemorate a fantasy of themselves in an Olympic event. The excitement was unbearable as each student received his/her gold medal in a make shift ceremony as I called each student up by name - what a wonderful memory for the students (and for me as well!).
