3D Poppy Craftivity :: Remembrance Day :: Veteran’s Day :: Memorial Day :: Anzac Day ::

Honour the Memory. Never Forget. A wonderful Poppy Project to honor Remembrance Day, Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, and Anzac Day. An integrated curricular units that encompasses art, language and social studies. Minimal prep and easy construction…perfect for the busy classroom. These units are created in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want depending on the needs and the abilities of your students. There are so many different possibilities. This unit can be approached in several ways. Either as a quick Remembrance Day project that will take about 90 minutes to complete. Or as long, in-depth Poppy project that will take upwards of a week to complete. I often spend a period working on the Poppy picture creating a beautiful detailed multimedia painting. These are great to work on shading details in poppies…tones and tints of red. I love adding texture to the poppies with the use of tissue paper. Then we will spend a period tracing a Poppy Poem and colouring in the boarder. With other grades, we will compose our own poems about Poppies and Remembrance Day. Then another block putting the project together. With older grade it will not take near as long…I teach Kindergarten right now.

Jill Marlowe’s professional career spans a period of 25 years working in research and engineering organizations to deliver hardware, technology, concepts and methods to enable complex aerospace systems for NASA’s missions. She currently serves as the Director of the Research Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center, where she leads a 1,100-person (670 civil servants, 330 on-site contractors) research organization to advance foundational research and develop technologies to enable NASA’s Aeronautics, Space Technology and Exploration missions. Prior to joining the Research Directorate, Ms. Marlowe served as Deputy Director of Langley’s Engineering Directorate, where she was responsible for day-to-day management and operation of 530-person (370 civil servants 150 contractors) engineering organization that designs, analyzes, fabricates, integrates, tests, and operates a wide variety of one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art aerospace technology and complex flight systems. She had the opportunity to serve as the Integrated Design & Analysis Manager for the Ares I-X Flight Test Vehicle, a pioneering development effort to flight test the predecessor of NASA’s Ares I launch vehicle. In this role, she was responsible for the overall technical leadership and direction for the Ares I-X integrated vehicle analyses and related verification activities, and led a diverse 60+ member team from across the Agency and industry. Leading up to her Ares I-X experience, Ms. Marlowe held a series of varied and increasingly responsible positions in Langley’s Research & Technology and Systems Engineering Directorates. In addition to these formal management positions, Ms. Marlowe has led and served on a variety of Center, Agency and professional teams.

She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace and Ocean Engineering from Virginia Tech in 1988, and then a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1990. In 1997, Ms. Marlowe completed a Degree of Engineer in Civil and Environmental Engineering at George Washington University, which is a post- master’s professional degree program designed for in-depth applied study versus basic research. In 2008, Ms. Marlowe was honored with the NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal, which is awarded for notably exceptional leadership that has had a pronounced effect upon the technical or administrative programs of the Agency. She is currently an AIAA Associate Fellow. Ms. Marlowe is married to Kevin L.
