Cultural Day

What a great day we had on cultural day! It was awesome to see how many different cultures we have in Room 10.

Tapa Art

We have been working hard on our tapa art. There were many stages to create these. First we had to draw four different designs then go over it in vivid. Next we scrunched our paper up until it was very soft (this was a lot of fun!). Next we dyed them using either red or yellow dye. Then Miss Pollock took them home to iron so they looked flat like cloth.
