"American Girl Doll Dresser" by Nicole, grade one Nicole began this by making little origami boxes which became the drawers. After building the dresser with wood pieces, she took it home to add a light (pen flashlight) that you push and then look in a hole on the side. I keep forgetting that this girl is only in the first grade.
"Tank of Terror" by Paul and Stephen, grade 5 "We made a tank that could go on land and in the water. At first it was a ship but then it became a tank. Paul made the light using household items. We worked a long time on it. We would come in before school, after school and at recess." This tank was the most popular piece of art at the show. Everyone loved it and the boys received about 30 artist letters. They still want to come in at recess to work on their next project, a balsa wood sculpture of the Eiffel Tower.
