Third grade students at the Charlottesville Waldorf School with the direction of teacher Kate Walter
Charlottesville, Virginia, USA
The third grade students with teacher, Kate Walter, recorded The Peace Round, a round written by Jean Ritchie and created a book with watercolor paintings representing the musical notation. The book included the lyrics in English and Chinese and was sent, with a CD of the children’s singing, to the Silian Primary School in Shenzhen, China. The class received from the Chinese school a packet with ten books the children produced with stories about their fabulously growing city and about trees.
The fourth grade, with class teacher Virginia Masterson, created a puzzle with animal images that grew out of their study of animals and their relationship to people in a shared world. The students’ project was sent to a school in Beijing, China.
