Hans Christian Andersen Projects Are Dazzling

Well, the Hans Christian Andersen projects are in from the fourth grade, and they are stunning. Boxes bring scenes to life, as did the artwork and songs and quilt. So many creative interpretations of some of our favorite stories! Here is just a small sampling. Please come by during report card pick up on April 19th to see more masterpieces inspired by the great Dane! The only ugly ducklings here are in the dioramas.
