Day 10:Prepare for grand opening
This picture depicts "Chicken-zilla" (in red) and "Brain-zilla" (in black) coexisting. This student began by experimenting and creating new ideas, however as time progressed he wanted to remove "Brain-zilla". With more interaction with his teachers, and feedback from his classmates, he decided to leave "Brain-zilla". This picture shows his creative diversity by his ability to create a creature out of clay and out of mixed media. It also depicts his experimenting through the use of glue and sand. Instead of depicting trees realistically, he explored materials and incorporated other mediums to create unique tree sculptures.
This picture shows the beginning processes of the student's description piece for his animal and its environment. This part of the unit focused on literacy and the student's ability to put their artistic decisions down onto paper. For his description, he drew an image of the creature, described in words and pictures where it's located in the world, and special features/characteristics of the creature and where it lived.
This is a picture of the teacher helping the student generate ideas. She was absent the days students built their clay creatures so instead, she developed a creature out of mixed media. Her ability to keep a positive attitude and an open mind allowed her to explore different methods of creating her creature and in the end left her with a piece of art she was proud of.
This is a picture of a student adding the finishing touches to her environment. She added a banner that provided viewers with some background knowledge as it related to her environment and creature.
