6th grade CAD/3D printing

My 6th grade tech ed students have been working with Google SketchUp and our new 3D printer in the library this quarter to create unique key chains & cookie cutters!  Here are a few key chain samples from the week before vacation.

Giving thanks...

8th grade has been learning about human form and proportion... and what better way than to study the artful beauty of Cirque du Soleil acrobats (still in progress).



7th graders and their personalized playing cards.


6th graders will be, once again, donating their art to Concord Hospital for Thanksgiving!  Patients who will be staying at the hospital during the Thanksgiving holiday will receive these handcrafted placemats with their meal.  An annual tradition for RMS 6th graders!

Start of Q2


Some of my favorite 7th graders made these posters for my room last week... I'm so proud of their growth last quarter and will miss them.
