Mission San Lowell de Quince
This make believe mission was made by all the 4th graders in Miss Parker's class in Room 15 at Lowell School. As part of the California history unit, students studied the Mission Period and wrote reports about one of the actual twenty-one missions. They learned that a typical mission would have thick adobe walls, a red tile roof, a church, rounded arches, an outdoor corridor, and a bell tower or wall. Students applied this knowledge to create this make-believe mission and named it after their school and room number.
