Third-grade students in Bryan Mandracchia’s class at Minnesauke Elementary School took their rainbow looming skills to a new level this November.

As a follow-up to a lesson on the election process, the class put democracy into action by voting on what they felt was the best way they could give back to the community. It was a unanimous decision to have a rainbow “loomathon” for the purpose of creating bracelets, charms and 3-D figures for children at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital.

Over the course of an hour, the students worked very hard to produce more than 75 beautiful creations.
