Kindergarten: Making Mobiles

Last week, Kindergarten worked together to build a totem pole out of their own individual totems. The completed totem pole represents the creation of the Kindergarten class. It is made up of a large group of unique individuals that all came together into one place; just as our different totems all came together to build the totem pole.

This past week, we moved on to the last lesson on Sculptures. This time we are working on hanging sculptures, or Mobiles. The best way to experience a mobile is to be able to see and touch one in person, which means that we needed to build one. To keep in the spirit of sculpting, we made paper sculptures (otherwise known as origami) to make the hanging pieces of the mobile. The class was tickled to find that they could make so many different animals out of just a small square of paper. Next week, we’ll be doing the actual building part of the project, where we hang and balance the mobile and its many pieces.
