Third Grade Monsters!!

Mrs. Blount and Mrs. Wey's third grade class designed monsters with pencil, marker and paper.  They were then given to Mrs. Cooke's KHS sculpture class.  The Kings High School Sculpture class built the monsters and out paper mache and then donated to the SLE students.  What a collaboration!
