Egg Carton Characters


Because we were virtual, I made kits for my middle school students that included two sections of egg carton and a cardboard substrate. There were other materials for our other projects as well.

The lesson was inspired by IG artist and teacher Nylah Kahn

Sculpture with Found Objects


This project was based on Alexander Calder’s stabiles and mobiles.

Kindergarten students were given a piece of cardboard with a chenille stem attached. I gave them bins of supplies and they chose how to use the supplies to make their sculpture. Some made figures. Others just added materials together in an abstract fashion.

They could string things on as with the beads, twist items in or use glue dots to attach. So fun to see all the different combos.
