2nd Grade:Under the Sea

 Mosaic Art and Paper Sculpture

Second grade students are currently hard at work on an Under the Sea themed cut paper project. 
This project combines both mosaic and paper sculpture techniques with additional 2-D and 3-D elements. 

 The above students are carefully cutting out shapes and gluing them down to create a fish. 

Some parts of the fish are glued flat to the white paper to create a mosaic.

Other pieces of paper are folded or curled with a pencil. This type of paper manipulation causes the fish to pop off the paper and create a fun 3-D element.

To create movement and volume the green paper strips are folded to form seaweed.

 The students have started gluing the blue triangles to create water. This lengthy process is similar to putting a puzzle together. 

I'm very impressed with the finished pieces!
