Early in the school year our 3rd 4th and 5th grade students took on a sketching challenge. I brought in all the peach pits left over from my family's summer peach eating. These fruits have disappeared from the grocery shelves, but the peach pits remain and that is what the students focused their attention on. They examined these little seeds and took notice of their textural surface and oval shape as well as how the light impacted the cast shadow. I was very impressed with the results! They are hanging in the school lobby.
