The Fifth Grade students have been studying the Aboriginal culture, and one of the most important aspects of their culture is dot art. Aborigines are known for creating very intricate images made up of only dots. Each image would tell a story, but it could also be used for a more practical purpose such as a map.
After learning about the Aboriginal culture the students were all given use of a digital camera and they were able to go outside and take pictures. They then chose one image they would like to replicate using dot art.
