3rd Grade Judy Chicago Dinner Party


Imagine my delight at having the opportunity to share dinner conversation with Louisa May Alcott, Wanda Gag, Georgia O’Keefe, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Helen Keller and Ella Fitzgerald at the 3rd grade’s recreation of the Judy Chicago Dinner Party this week. At the dinner table, the famous female artists and authors, played by the students who had researched them, discussed both the struggles and accomplishments of their personal lives and professional careers. At other dinner tables, Famous Firsts, World Leaders, Female Scientists, Heroic Women and Civil Rights Activists gathered to share their own stories and to discover the similarities and differences in their experiences, while educating and entertaining onlookers with their acquired expertise.
