Kindergarten: Stages of Sculpture

The Kindergarten class has started on their sculpture lessons. We began by acting like the two different types of sculpture: in-the-round and relief. While some students posed as a statue, the rest of the class walked around to look from different views. We were able to discover that a relief sculpture can’t be seen from the back, while an in-the-round sculpture can be seen from every angle. Once everyone was seated again, we took the rest of class to actually make sculptures out of Play-Doh. Everyone made two sculptures; one of each type.

The completed creations were then set on a table for everyone to walk around and discuss. Some of our sculptures included snowmen, burritos, the Statue of Liberty, an octopus, and several Pokemon.

The next day, we talked about the real Statue of Liberty and about her different qualities: what type of sculpture she was, what she was made of, and how she was made. After some discussion, we started another in-the-round sculpture. This one could be made of construction paper, popsicle sticks, tissue paper, and aluminum foil. Many of the projects are still in progress, but the completed ones feature an eagle in a nest and a lion that stands on his own.
