4th Grade Totem Poles

4th grade students started out the year by learning about totem poles made by Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest.  Students learned about stylization- a way of drawing an object in which an artist adds his or her own style to what is being drawn.  Each student painted a specific animal and worked together with other people at their table in order to create a two dimensional totem pole.  The finished totem poles are now on display in the commons.  Most are at least six feet tall!
