Fourth grade Foil Figures

These are a nice 3-D addition to our intro on gesture drawing...




 
... each one is made from a sheet of aluminum foil, about 12" long.  Use this guide to make the cuts, then carefully bunch the parts together.  After the students made the figures and shadows, I did the gluing myself with a few dots of hot glue.

  1. So cool! I had to try it right away! Do you mark out the lines for the students to cut?

  2. No, but I draw a guide on the whiteboard for everyone to follow when making the cuts.

  4. how much aluminum foil containers did the grade level use up? I figured I'd buy it with my own money but I can see it getting costly quickly.

    1. Sharpie, for tracing the figures and filling in. You could really use anything...
