ANGRY BIRD 'SCULPTURE'
There's often a gap between a school's curriculum and the day-to-day interests of their students. Walking into the main hallway of College Wood Elementary in Carmel, IN last week for my author-illustrator school visit, I couldn't help smile ear-to-ear. BINGO! These students each had a ball making their own 'angry bird.'
What a super fun (low-cost + simple materials) project that involved a gigantic number of students. I can just imagine the hubbub of excitement over engaging kiddos right where they 'live.' Look at these personalities.
Each entry into the platoon of birds-on-a-wire is totally unique!
Need an end-of-the-year, one day "project" to help conclude the year?
Look no further!
I'll never forget when I was an elementary Art teacher and created a bulletin board featuring the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.' I was da coolest! Every student in the building was delirious that I could 'relate' to them.
It's good to demonstrate that you can relate.
