2nd Grade: 3D Not-A-Box Collages

IMG_9867

I got the idea for this project from a colleague in my district. On the first day, I read Not-A-Box, by Antoinette Portis and students thought of different ways they could transform an ordinary box into something new. On the first day, students covered the background sides of their pop-up with paper. On the second and third day, students used paper to transform their box into something new and add details. I showed students how to make and attach tabs and many of them used tabs to add more 3D elements to their collage.
