Virtual School- Book Sculptures, G7

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a unit I taught 6 years ago. Since we have gone virtual, I thought it would be absolutely perfect for my grade 7 students. Mainly, because the process of making a book sculpture is very therapeutic, it also meant limited computer time!

Not to mention it is an awesome project where every student can succeed! 

Here are the steps we followed. My plans are in the form of a slideshow so I’ll insert some images of the key slides so that you have a clear understanding of the process.

STEP 1: Look at samples of book sculptures, describe what they are, and discuss how you think they are made.

Collect Inspirational images and add to the documentation slides.

STEP 2: Consider how books make you feel

STEP 7: Add the interactive part of the sculpture.

This could be air-dry clay, paper mache, foil and wire, or origami book pages.

SINCE THIS WAS ALL COMPLETED VIRTUALLY I ADDED AN EXTRA REQUEST.

The students were required to photograph their book in their favourite location home, with a selfie, a pet, or family member. This was so we could learn a little bit about where they are, and feel just a little more connected. I adored the photos I received.

YOU CAN VIEW ALL THEIR ART IN OUR ARTSONIA GALLERY.
