Paper Sculpture

Second graders created abstract sculptures after observing Alexander Calder's stabiles. Students discovered that they could bend, roll, curl, and fold their 2D strip of paper and create three dimensional forms. This is always a favorite piece of artwork for the second graders-- and I love it when students tell me they made a sculpture at home and even showed their parents how to create one!


  1. I always love this project...the kids get so excited :)

  2. Early finishers got to make a mini sculpture to take with them....they were in heaven!

  3. i love this...i so want to do this project!
