Leaf Sculptures

For these simple leaf sculptures we rolled one inch strips of colored paper on the end of a narrow paint brush and gave it a good twst, forming it into a tighter coil.

The second grade students rolled and glued coils for the interior space of the leaf.  They shaped them differently Ito triangles, eyes, hearts, and diamonds.  They also shared and donated coils to classmates that needed more.  Cooperation and collaboration was an added bonus to this lesson.

I f the student had designed a strong stem at one end, then I threaded a string through the opening for hanging the display.  If not, then I punched a hole for hanging.

I should have more photos next week to show other results.
