5th grade Polyhedrons
*This post has taken on a life of its own.....via Pinterest! If you try the project yourself , would you please share your results with me? I would love it!
Also, you will find this post very helpful for directions in completing this project. The template for the shape can be found at the bottom of the previously mentioned post. I have been receiving lots of "help" comments and I don't want to leave anyone hanging! You can also contact me via my school email address which you find under the "about me" page on this blog. Happy art making!
My 5th graders have been working SO HARD on completing this very cool and very modern looking sculpture called a polyhedron. The kid are very proud when they finally finish putting together all 30 pieces. It takes a lot of dedication, time and attention to detail to get it just right. Not to mention, patience and lots of problem solving! Here are the first two students who completed their sculptures:
This lesson idea was found on Artsonia. Art teacher, Micah Snider from Wichita, KS has been very helpful at coaching me through the process via email. Thank you so much, Micah!
