In an effort to create multiple cross-curricular connections in the classroom and increase student motivation, Indian Fields School has come up with a “novel” idea: an eBook entirely written and illustrated by children, for children. We feel that giving students a genuine, worldwide audience is not only a tremendous experience for them but also gives them an authentic, first-hand look at the entire publishing process. This eBook covers the topic of Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The students listened to each movement of this piece, voraciously taking notes as they listened, and over the course of several weeks collaboratively compiled these notes into prose. They explored Vivaldi’s intent in each movement of each season and set their writing to beautiful illustrations. We hope you enjoy and learn a thing or two about this amazing piece of music!
