Story Sculptures

Grade 2

John Lentine,

Students will discuss what is 2- and 3- dimensional and what a sculpture is. They will then look at examples of art in their community. Students will create a small free-standing sculpture based on a story (any good story will do.) This is a model of a larger sculpture they are proposing to build for an imaginary new library.

Objectives and assessment criteria

Students will:

  1. using a familiar story, design and build a sculpture that has important elements of the story.
  2. identify art and objects in their environment as 2D or 3D.
  3. tell their story to another person using their sculpture.
