This past winter in my Grade Three classroom we made a dragon mural. We began by cutting out large sheets of blue and grey construction paper to make mountain ranges, streams, and rivers. And then we added our dragons. Some were so large they loomed over the mountain peaks. Others resembled hummingbirds. Some stood perched on a slope. Others were in flight, entering their dragon lairs. Two of the children decided to make a lake for the mural and filled it with fish, happily swimming about in brightly coloured pairs. I asked them to tell me about the lake. They said it was magic.
