Calder inspired paper sculpture, 1st grade

This lesson is easy to complete in one 45 minute session, since storing 3-D work can be problematic in many art rooms - it's a make and take! I found the instructions, complete with helpful video, here at Pink Stripey Socks : .
We looked at a few examples of Alexander Calder's abstract stabile sculptures and discussed their environments, then students drew an environment of the base after securing the sculpture with folded tabs and glue stick. Some classes added patterns to their papers before folding and cutting.
