THE AMAZING MINI MATISSE (a.k.a. Nic Hahn) HOSTED THE 2ND ANNUAL ARTIST TRADING CARD SWAP #ATCSwap!
You can check her out here...and she is always apart of my BLOGTASTIC ART BLOGS(look to your left & you will see the list!)!
If you don't know anything about the ATC Swap...you are missing out!! Go to her blog now & look it up. It is such a wonderful opportunity to connect with the world...and see amazing student art from a variety of locations, teaching situations, and grade levels!! Tulip Grove Elementary created 100 ATCs collaboratively to swap this year! In return, we received 100 cards back! Here are the amazing works that found their way to Nashville,TN!
I try to make it a geography lesson as well. I include a map with each set. I mark Tennessee in red & place a dot on Nashville so they have a point of reference. I then mark where the cards are from in yellow. In class we discuss how far the locations are from us.
The teachers and student linger outside my room looking at the cards & locations.
