LINDEN — The Linden Elementary G&T program draws students from all schools. Grade 1 G&T students from Stephanie Webb’s class created different types of origami birds after reading the Caldecott Medal-winning book, “Hey, Al.” The students learned about the Chinese art of paper-folding, which originated in the year 100 A.D, and carefully followed directions to create their birds. In the story, Al travels to an island full of different types of birds.
