|Jim Dine, "Four Hearts"|
|Jim Dine heart sculptures|
Students rolled, pinched and cut out their squishy hearts made from Model Magic. They traced a CD to create their heart base and proceeded to apply the same steps from their drawings. This activity employed the students to reflect and really process what they learned the week before; what steps they took and the process of working with various materials. The most significant component was their "Love is...." statement. All students reflected and interpreted the way love is expressed. In completing their statements, they need to express an action ("-ing" word), aside from kissing and hugging. Although 2nd graders still tend to be a bit squeamish about those two actions. "EEEEwwwww", was the resounding response.
After completion and left to dry, we hot glued the heart to the center of the circle. Now, all we need is a turntable.
