Plaster Wrap Sculptures, 5th Grade
Every year I try to have my students create sculptures from recycled materials. Usually we do it with papermache. However, this year, I thought I would try plaster wrap instead. I LOVED plaster wrap, because it was easy to clean up and dried quickly.
Students began by creating sculptures out of bottles, foil, cardboard, and other recycled materials. After this, students covered their sculptures in plaster wrap. Lastly, students painted their sculptures with tempera paint.
