Oregon Trail Sculptures

Lincoln Street Elementary Residency, Hillsboro, OR (4th grade)


Mixed Media & Paper Mache sculpture

4th graders at Lincoln Street Elementary demonstrated their understanding about the various landscapes and landforms along the Oregon Trail. They built their own three-dimensional paper mache and mixed-media sculptures of a chosen place. Students were challenged to represent every aspect of these landscapes, down to the flora and fauna of the specific locations.
