                                 DIRECTED LESSON

Get Set
Have a student volunteer come to the front of the room and hold a pose. Discuss the idea
that a person is a three dimensional form. Can we walk around this sculpture? What
other three dimensional objects can the children find in their classroom?

Focus
Looking at Bottle Cap Giraffe, ask students to describe the form. What would it look like
from the other side?

Develop
Ask students to tell you the names of some animals they like. Show them a cardboard
tube. What part of the animal’s body does it resemble? Show students how to cover the
tube with foil and add legs. Students can cut heads from paper and add yarn tails or
manes. They can draw faces with markers or glue on found objects when available.

Evaluation
What is the name of your animal? What else could you add to it?

Summary
A sculpture is a three dimensional form that takes up space. We can walk around it.

Journal writing prompt
Visualize a habitat for your animal. Tell where it lives and what it eats. Give reasons
why you like your artwork.

Extensions
    READING - Read THE STEADFAST TIN SOLDIER by Hans Christian
      Andersen, illustrated by David Jorgensen.
    VA - Make a classroom zoo or other environmental display for the animals.
      Draw or paint a background mural for the wall and tabletop.
    VA - Have children move to lively music. Unexpectedly stop the music and have
      children freeze. Talk about the sculptures they have made with their bodies.
    VA - Make sculptures with clay or modeling dough. Make a person or an animal.

Assessment
(AP) I know that sculptures take up space.
(CE) I made a sculpture of an animal.
