Second-graders in Coleen Brunhuber’s class at Gribbin constructed papier-mâché globes as a culminating activity in social studies. Each student began with a balloon, and glue and water for the paste. They then cut strips of newspaper and covered the entire balloon. After the balloons dried overnight, the students painted the balloon blue and let it again dry overnight. The students then cut and pasted the continents and oceans together, creating their beautiful projects, which are on display in the school’s hallway.
