In honor of the inauguration of Barack Obama last week, we did a little collage project. We discussed the inauguration and the fact that President Obama had been sworn in to lead our country. Then we cut a bunch of pictures and words from our newspaper and busted out the glue.
Eleanor took great joy in gluing everything together. She said, “He looks so happy!” when she glued the picture of President Obama taking the oath of office, which she subsequently covered with a picture of the crowds. Ah, well, it is her collage after all.
And, Henry joined in the fun too with some random clips from the paper. Despite being a bit young for the lesson on government, he was astonishingly careful in his placement of the papers. He also added a little crayon, just for a bit of color — or so I imagine.
