Students created their own Alexander Caulder inspired sculptures using railroad paper.
Students described the use of right angles and geometric shapes that made up their sculptures.
My sculpture is made up of geometric shapes like circles and triangles. We also cut out right angles to use as supports -student
We felt that Alexander Caulder's Mobils could work well with idea of balance, cause & effect. The mobil is also a great metaphor to show how one person's slight movement can cause a chain reaction that can affect the rest of the community.
Due to the behavioral issues in 4th grade, Mrs. Beatty wanted to focus on the idea of how our actions can affect others. How our roles as human beings can have a positive or negative effect in the community.
We chose Alexander Caulder's work for 4th grade because it's 3-dimensional, has movement, uses color and is interactive.
