Matryoshka Dolls

Second graders made pictures of Russian Nesting Dolls!  The students in Mrs. Morrison's class got to see Mr. Claussen talk about some of the Matryoshka Dolls and where they came from.  He was our guest speaker and shared with us some of the history of where the dolls came from and how they are made.  He had some really awesome dolls to share with us!  Thanks Mr. Claussen!
Here is a few photo's taken when Mr. Claussen came to visit the second grade art classroom.

This set of nesting dolls tells the story about the big turnip that was difficult to pull out of the ground.  The father, mother, daughter, dog, cat, and mouse all worked together and pulled with all their strength to get that turnip out of the ground.
