The next in my series of “around the room” games is sculpture. The goal is to expose my students to a vast array of sculpture related vocabulary, materials and techniques in the shortest amount of time.
I created 5 different sculpture project mini-centers. Three of the mini centers were individual projects and two of them were collaborative group projects. Any of these could be a great little standalone project for a traditional classroom or a demo/challenge activity for a full or modified TAB Choice Classroom. They are all actually ideas I ran across on Pinterest, so none of them were super original. Each center had slightly different supplies and different attachment tools and materials available.
The kids self-selected a group of 4-5 to work with for the unit and traveled from table to table to complete one project at each table. Each team had a group shoe box for storing their projects until the gallery walk on the last day.
The unit ran longer than I had planned, since kids needed and wanted a full 55 minute period to do each center. You can tell which centers were most popular by which projects students selected for their artsonia upload.
