The sixth grade is exploring the theme of building monuments using an integrated curriculum in social studies and spectacle arts.  In their social studies unit on ancient Egypt students took on the question “Who builds our cities and at what cost?” They compared and contrasted the building of the pyramids to the building of the city of Chicago. The artistic result is a series of collage sculptures that are a symbolic monument to the people who build our city.
