As part of their unit on Presidents, LAKE students read Israeli author and illustrator Hanoch Piven's award-winning What Presidents Are Made Of. They examined and enjoyed the colorful and witty collages in which Hanoch captures the unique personalities of each man and tells stories of their lives that we don't often hear.

LAKE students watched several short videos in which Hanoch talks about his collage-making and encourages people to experiment with common objects to create their own portraits and works of art. Here is what Lakers are made of
– both inside and out. Enjoy!

About the Author

Wingra School
wingraducks Madison, WI

Wingra School is a small, independent day school providing a progressive education for children ages 5-14, located on Monroe Street across from the U.W. Arboretum.

The word “Wingra” means “duck” in Ho-Chunk. As ducks, our students are organized into four, multi-age levels, Nest (ages 5-7), Pond (ages 7-9), Lake (ages 9-11) and Sky (ages 11-14). Each level consists of two classrooms with staffing at about a 12:1 ratio. Our staff also includes specialists in the areas of art, library, music, physical education, Spanish, and technology.

At Wingra, we believe children are natural learners and that it is our job as educators to create engaging and healthy programs based on their developmental and individual needs and interests. Some features of our program include: ample time for laughter, play, the arts, quiet time and snack; high levels of student involvement, engagement and leadership; hands-on science and math activities; and integrated thematic units of study.
