A view of The Learning Garden this snowy morning. So many questions it raises - What direction did the wind blow last night? What time was this picture taken? What is happening to the strawberry plants under the snow? What questions (or answers!) do you have? #QuakersImagine
From inside the pages of a book, fourth-grade students learn about the abstract artist Kandinsky who had the inherited trait, synesthesia. He could hear colors as sounds. #quakersimagine
