Kindergarteners are working together to create Line Sculptures! As inspiration, I showed students a Power Point of sculptures* that have lines and we discussed the various colors and materials the sculptures are made out of. Students worked in pairs to create their sculptures. They began by cutting tabs into a cardboard tube and attaching it to a cardboard base with tape. Then created lines by twisting, bending, folding, and curling paper and wire and attaching it with tape. I planned two days for this project, but the students are so excited about it that I’m giving them an extra day to work on it.
*I found a great list of contemporary sculptors that use lines on this blog.
