Each student chose a phrase from “New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus to compare to an illustration in Emma’s Poemand then wrote their interpretation of the meaning of that phrase. In math, the sixth Grade used their knowledge of ratio and scale to create an enlarged version of the Statute of Liberty as depicted in the book. They hand wrote “New Colossus” using the same scale and then the real fun started! With the help of Ms. Rottenberg, Lady Liberty was assembled and put together as an Agam – inspired poster. The third and fourth Grade math class learned about fractions, polygons, symmetry, and most importantly, following precise directions, by making origami boats sailing into New York Harbor from nations all over the world. To continue with the theme of immigration, global awareness, and geography skills, fifth and sixth grades took on a study of longitude and latitude. We took advantage of pumpkin season and painted pumpkins to look like globes using lines of latitude and longitude. Much was learned from each process and each class enjoyed contributing to the final product.
