Third Graders read the story The Mixed Up Chameleon by Eric Carle. They then looked at different examples of famous sculptures. We discussed that sculptures/ 3D art is art that you can see all the way around.
Students first made a pattern on colored paper and then folded and cut the paper to create the chameleon’s body. Next they added the head, legs, eyes, and tongue.
Lastly, they used patterned rolling pins and neon paint to create a background for their sculptures. Chameleons are known to change color to blend in with whatever they are standing near.
I can describe 3D art.
I can make a pattern.
I can cut using technique demonstrated by the teacher.
