Be Inspired Grant

Thanks to a Be Inspired Grant from TFAC (Tryon Fine Arts Center), Mrs. Rackley’s fifth graders have been integrating some art projects into science this year. Pictured below are some of the body system projects the students completed. The students have to understand how human body systems perform functions necessary for life. They are learning the parts of each body system and how the systems interact with each other.  Their body system kids bring the body systems to life for them.

The students also created masks during their Inherited Traits unit. The masks below show their inherited traits – eye color, hair color, skin color, whether or not they have freckles, dimples, or a widow’s peak hairline.
