Design Cubes, 5th grade

 As a segue from our 2-D first semester into our 3-D second semester, my fifth graders built temporary group sculptures with paper cubes, with each side representing an element of design. Since cubes only have six sides, we decided that form and value could share a square. We also looked at the sculptures of Japanese designer and sculptor Isamu Noguchi to see how he uses the elements of design in his modern, minimal sculptures. We were especially impressed by the massive cubes that seemed to defy gravity...




  1. I've used cubes like these for book reports when I taught reading and for artist studies now that I teach art, but this is a new spin on the idea. Love it! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Can you publish a copy of the pattern you used or the site where you got the pattern? Thanks!
