This year we have focused our learning on the differences between two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects and artwork. In the beginning of the year most students made flat crafts. They also pressed playdough to the table and created two-dimensional pieces. Through our math and art lessons we have learned the difference between two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes, objects and artwork. We have used various materials to learn how to make things that stand up. Our class did some sculpting from Model Magic a few weeks ago. This past week, we used coloured paper bags to create animals of their choice. Some students made ducks, bunnies and one student made a horse. I had a few students also draw their animal using the Doodle Buddy App. This helped them compare their animals. We have developed an understanding between two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork! Here is some of our work from the past few weeks.
Here is a challenge for families at home. What can your family make at home that is three-dimensional? We would love to see a photo or the actual object brought to school. Some suggested materials: Tin foil for scuplting, cardboard boxes, pipecleaners, straws, playdough, wire, Model Magic, mud, or soap. I’m sure as you look around your home or backyard, you will be able to locate a few items. Are you up for the challenge?
