Here’s a project we are doing for Women’s History Month. Feel free to adopt.
Judy Chicago created a three-dimensional artwork titled, The Dinner Party. This art represents thirty-nine place settings of famous historical women. From Sojourner Truth to Susan B. Anthony, each woman has a unique place-setting that includes a hand-painted china plate, ceramic flatware and chalice, and a napkin with an embroidered gold edge.
In honor of Women’s history month, create a place setting for an important woman in history. Research and design a unique place setting for a person of your choice. Your woman’s place setting must include a plate, flatware, cup and a napkin for your guest. Be creative and find ways to incorporate important information and facts about your special guest.
Your place setting should fit on a normal size place-mat, approximately 12 inches wide by 18 inches long.

We meet hundreds and thousands of people in our lives and because most of them may be brief your manners should make a good impression. Watch the video from the 1950’s to help you learn and guide your Dinner Party Manners.
All projects are due Thursday, March 31st along with this entry form – The Dinner Plate.
We plan to select 18 place settings from the grade level. They will be on display and other classes can come and visit for a “bite” to eat and learn some history.
