Chesapeake Bay Life Banner Project

This 3rd and 4th grade banner project was created by integrating fourth grade Chesapeake Bay science curriculum and MD fine arts content standards.

Our focus was to identify the key components to a healthy bay, it’s floor, water and watershed. Together we identified important organisms that live in the bay’s environment and created drawings and paintings to represent them. The mural came together as a powerful depiction of the interdependence of all who live in Chesapeake Bay watershed.

More than 120 students, faculty, staff and PTA volunteers collaborated on the 14ft x 12ft artwork’s concept, design and painting.

The project is supported by

and the Fairland EC PTA
