Nothing makes you more blue than a clogged up useless glue (bottle). We've all felt the frustration and disgust when glue bottles don't work right. But have we considered how this makes THEM feel? This original musical Fugleflick by Dryden 5th graders may change the way glue bottles are used everywhere!
This original musical Fugleflick (student created-art related) video attempts to simply answer the age-old question of "What is Art." This little masterpiece was performed, film, and animated by a talented group of 5th graders at Dryden Elementary School in Arlington Heights Illinois over a period of two months during their lunch recess time.
