My fifth graders are learning about human gestures with foil sculptures and then personalizing them into things the students like to do. This project is very easy and SO much FUN!
First we made our sculptures, then students used a variety of materials to give their sculpture personality!
Here are a few finished sculptures!!
1. Begin with a large rectangle of heavy duty foil
2. Draw one line at the bottom with a sharpie a little longer than the length of your hand
3. Then draw two lines at the top the same length
4. Cut on the lines
the two bottom flaps will be the legs. Gently roll them into a cylinder form
don't squeeze them yet. Remind kids when they begin to squeeze the arms and legs to do it VERY VERY VERY VERY gently because if you squeeze your sculpture tight it will become brittle and will break and will not be able to stand on its own
6. Now roll the arms into a cylinder just like the legs and gently gently squeeze but don't squeeze all the way
Bend the feet, Hands, knees, and elbows
Then decorate!!! Have fun!!
