When is a Box Not a Box?

The answer to that age-old riddle is when it’s a diorama!Image

What is it about this project that always appeals to me?  While others might shy away from this time-consuming and sometimes messy affair, I look forward to it – even when manning the glue gun and burning my fingers.

This week we created diorama habitats.  Most students did a bit of research at home and brought in items that would make their habitat come to life. The thought that goes into these never ceases to amaze.  


Best part?  When they willingly share their materials and offer suggestions and encouragement to classmates.  

I hope I’m never too old for dioramas.
