The district’s elementary visual art teachers introduced an underwater sea life unit for kindergarten to sixth grade students in honor of Earth Day.

The lessons included a virtual trip to the Georgia Aquarium where they observed live webcam footage of various habitats. This e-learning experience demonstrated real life scenarios that helped students learn about the sea and its many creatures. The students were able to create descriptive pictures using crayons, markers and pencils to express their knowledge.

The collaborative video presentation featured student works from Columbus Avenue, Archer Street, Bayview Avenue, Leo F. Giblyn, New Visions and Caroline G. Atkinson schools, under the guidance of Ms. Amanda Rodriguez, Ms. Lisa Scarola, Ms. Laurie Kolodny, Ms. Susan Warren, Ms. Nancy Williams, Ms. Emily Hertzberg, and Ms. Eleanor Barry.
