This was a fun Kindergarten art lesson that I did this week with my students. I tied this lesson into the idea of Dr. Seuss and Whoville. I showed the students pictures of Whoville and we talked about the crazy roads, stairs, and houses in Dr. Seuss' artwork. I then told the students that we were going to make our own 3D Whoville. This got the students very excited.
I then had my kindergarten students create these really fun paper sculptures. We began with long strips of paper which we glued onto a piece of paper. I showed the students how to make the paper pop up off the page. When glueing, I had the students count to 10 while holding the paper to make sure it actually stayed in place. Then I had students cut out shapes like circles and triangles to add to their sculptures. Lastly, students crumpled up tissue paper and glued it to their artwork.
My students absolutely LOVED this project! I love how the simplest projects make the Kindergartners excited.
