The 6th Graders at Holy Cross School in KC read the book “The Rock Garden” by Nancy White. It is a non-fiction text. It is part of the Art for All Series. This series contains books about pieces of art that was created for people to enjoy outdoors for free. This rock garden was created by a man who labeled himself “not an artist”. He lives in Chandigarh, India. His name is Nek Chand. He never studied art or sculpture making. Students wrote about why this rock garden is special and unique. They had to write two paragraphs including reasons with text evidence. They had to state their main reason with supporting evidence in the first paragraph and then write their second reason in the second paragraph. Enjoy the reading!
