The photos below show the artwork the Gan children have been working on as they learn about Tu B’Shevat over the last few weeks. Tracy describes the learning as covering:
- pictures of trees made from fruit, learning about the types of foods
- trees made with a handprint trunk and different textures for the different seasons
- the weekend after the snow we learnt about sheleg and made snowmen (monsters) out of Rice Krispies and painted a snowy tree scene to introduce trees (ehtz) for Tu Bushvat
- family trees and bird feeders in preparation for Tu Bishvat.
The children had a great time and now know all about the festival too!
