Fourth graders at Lyseth Elementary School recently wrapped up a Side x Side program integrating a science and literacy unit on Maine owls with mixed media bookmaking. Led by teaching artist Jill Osgood, students learned observational journaling, sketching from life, and how to illustrate owl body parts and adaptations. They then created a large-format single sheet book to display their research and artwork. The program culminated with an outdoor celebration of learning where students shared their owl books with peers, family, and friends.
