Last week students at Gregory Elementary School's Camp No Other Person Like You! prepared for their digital showcase scheduled for 9-11 a.m. on July 17. Students worked hard last week during media arts time to create a stop-motion video using clay as a medium. A fifth grade class completed a self-portrait as part of their arts integration time. They drew the second half of their face from a digital portrait. With Discovery Center staff, students learned about light and shadows by making 3D shadow puppets.
Last week students learned about Fuddle and Zelly from The WorryWoo Monsters series. Fuddle was confused and couldn't make up her mind and decide what to do. Zelly was envious and wanted everything that everyone else had. Both Woos learned that by looking at themselves, they have the tools to make decisions and be happy with what they have.
At the end of camp, all students will receive a backpack filled with school supplies to get them ready for the fall. We have more than 400 backpacks for students!
