Feisty Fifth Graders~ Winter Birtch Trees

So did you know that birch tree bark can be soaked and used to make a cast? Or that birch ply is used for surfboards and model airplanes because it's so light? Maybe you didn't know that in Germany young men decorate birch trees in the front yards of their secret crush to show their feelings. Well, now ya do and so does fifth grade, along with a lot of other interesting facts about birch trees. Actually we set out to create a collage using warm and cool color tissue and strips of paper that we later painted meticulous details and shadows onto.

Turned out gorgeous!
