The Chiva Bus Parade

Chivas come from Columbia, South America.
        These fifth grade students studied the brightly colored buses, Chivas, of Latin America. This transportation is unique to the culture of people who live south of our Mexican boarders. Students shaped clay into basic bus shapes and then attached animals, ladders, and people to the outside of their buses before painting them in bright, bold acrylic paints.

These artisan rustic buses are adapted to rural transport.
Chivas must carry passengers, luggage, and sometimes even domestic animals over mountainous terrain.

These buses are built tough and can plow through
 just about anything, including mud!
