Leap Day. Rossini the opera composer was born on this day in the 1700's. We listened to his music "Dueling Cats" and watched a movie about his most famous opera The Barber of Seville. We learned many things about his life.
Grade 3 Wednesday
Today we finished our art unit. We used the day to as a make-up day to catch up on any art projects not finished. We have studied five art periods. Ancient Art, Renaissance, Early American, Impressionism, and Modern Art.
