I have been doing some fun dessert art projects with 1st-4th grade. We looked at Wayne Theibauds work for inspiration and created an assortment of cakes and ice cream.

I saw this idea online and just had to try it. This lesson was a great way to teach sculpture and was easy enough for the little ones to do. We cut the top of brown paper bags in strips. (I told the kids to use their thumb as a guide to the width of each strip). We opened the bottom of the bag and twisted into a trunk. Then twisted the top strips into branches. I hot glued the trees to a small piece of cardboard to help them stand up and students tore paper leaves to glue to the branches.
We have been working on an architecture unit in 2nd grade based on the book Roberto the Insect Architect. We did a lot of brainstorming about the types of buildings needed in a community and then students created a collage. I loved their creativity on the buildings! This project also made a great display on a bulletin board!
