Second grade students listened to the story I Am Small by Emma Dodd. The story is about a small penguin and his adventures in the world. We decided to bring the main character to life by creating a three-dimensional sculpture! First, students used newspaper and masking tape to build the base of their penguin. Next class, they used "art goo" (paper-mache) to create the sculpture. On the last day of this project, students add the final touches with tempera paint, googly eyes and a scarf!
The small penguins turned out so cute!
