Valerie Fahey is the art teacher
for grades K-5 in Saudi Arabia.
Valerie endeavours to incorporate
art into as many of their curricula as possible and in the case
of this hiss-tory snake project it was done as a part of their language
The children at this tiny village
school in Saudi Arabia come from all over the world. In K-5 alone
they have boys from the Phillipines, Egypt and Canada. The girls
are from Pakistan, Palestine, Spain and the U.S. The school is truly
the life of the village.
Valerie felt that the
hiss-tory snake project seemed like the perfect form in which
to let the fifth graders think about what was important to them
in their lives.
It also provided a forum from which
to share anecdotes with each other about themselves.
"All in all, they enjoyed not
only their colorful creations but also the challenge of combining
writing with art" writes Valerie.
