First graders learned that sculptures are 3-dimensional and will not go home in their folders because they are not flat! Sculptures can be big, like the Statue of Liberty, or they can be small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. They can be made out of glass, metal, stone, ice, paper, wood, clay, or found objects.
Students learned how to cut, fold, bend, and glue paper to make it into sculptures. They attached the paper to a cardboard base. Students imagined roller coasters, slides, forts, and all kinds of creative places as they sculpted.

I learned how to make sculptures out of paper - even at home!" -Blake
