Oaxaca Sculptures

On Wednesday, second graders displayed incredible flexible thinking when we discovered  (at the last minute), our field trip to the Flynn Theater to see the Spanish play, "Dream Carver" was cancelled. Scholars made the best of it, and created Oaxacan animal sculptures out of model magic. Throughout our study of Mexico, students will be exposed and have many hands on experiences with the elements of Mexican culture. Oaxaca is most famous for hand carved, brightly decorated, wooden animal sculptures. Students had a great time creating and decorating their very own! We are looking forward to learning more about the elements of Mexican culture!
