Soap Carving at McConnellsville Elementary

Mrs. Malenowski's  students at McConnellsville Elementary are currently reading From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg.  We have done much research on the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Michelangelo in particular. After we watched a video of how Michelangelo could picture a form within a block of marble, students were invited to discover what was in their very own block of marble ... a bar of Ivory soap! Using plastic knives, paper clips and popsicle sticks, they carved their designs and had a wonderful time!
