First grade students learn from virtual artist-in-residence

First grade students have recently been working with artist-in-residence, Gregory Acker, for their first grade STEAM unit on sound. Mr. Acker is a world music teacher and performer. He has joined first grade students virtually in music, science, and art classes, helping them to learn from the sound kits he provided to each student. The students learned about different types of sounds, how to make different instruments, and were able to use their artistic skills to decorate their kits.

A special thanks to the Fine Arts Guild for making it possible for Mr. Acker to work with our students!
