2nd Grade Problem Solvers Share their Solutions with our Alderman Rodriguez
Our 2nd grade Problem Solvers put their ideas into action! Each student researched a problem that is meaningful in their lives and important to them. After studying activists in our world, they were inspired to create solutions to each problem they researched! Alderman Rosanna Rodriguez visited each classroom to learn about the problems that resonate with our 2nd Grade Activists and listened to their feedback and solutions! We hope to see their solutions in action in our community soon!
Thank you for your visit!
Our 1st and 2nd grade students have been studying Favianna Rodriguez’s social justice posters, which are the on display from I Paint My Mind in the auditorium hallway, and used her collage and line style as inspiration for their own self portraits. Check out these beautiful pieces from our 1st and 2nd Grade Artists!
