5th Grade Memory Collages: The fifth graders discussed an "I Remember" poem by Joe Brainard, and created their own "I Remember" poems about their class trip to Ashokan Learning Center. Then we looked at and talked about collages by Alex Katz, and created collages about their favorite trip memories. They were encouraged to overlap paper to create a sense of distance, and to add as many details as they could remember.
