Inspired by the short film, Everything is Incredible, a documentary about "Agustin, a Honduran man born into poverty and living with the debilitating effects of polio in the small mountain town of Siquatepeque, Honduras. Since 1958, he has been building a helicopter from miscellaneous materials, including bicycle parts, rebar, and wood. Agustin's project is admired by some members of his community and scoffed at by others. His story reveals his imagination, creativity, and perseverance."
Students explored the meaning of resilience in their powerful poems in which they recalled the incredible, sources of support when you have fallen, and the color of resiliency. Experimenting with poetic elements (alliteration, personification, and structure) as well watercolor techniques introduced by Kevin Hoth, Anya's dad, each child created rich, moving pieces of art. If you are unable to read them on the website, please have your child read theirs to you or view them outside the classroom.
