Global Learners

Babylon Memorial Grade School sixth-grade students are studying the world around them through artistic, research and technology-based lens as part of the new five-week Global Learners course.

To increase their understanding of endangered animals, the students worked with art teacher Patricia Stork and library media specialist Lisa Lindeman to create a virtual zoo. The online venture includes pictures, videos and information about each animal studied and can be accessed by individuals worldwide. The students worked independently on researching the featured animals before collaborating as a class on the virtual project.
As a lasting memory of the project, the class created a mural depicting each animal studied. Images of the animals were etched onto colorful tiles painted by the students.
