This lesson is fantastic to help your younger students develop their fine motor skills. Students love the idea of turning trash to treasure! To make this lesson even more engaging, you could have students go on a “treasure” hunt around the school, picking up small odds and ends (broken pencils, paper clips, twigs, etc…) to use in their sculptures. The lesson would also be a great tie-in to recycling or Earth Day.

This great Art Ed lesson plan is 100% FREE to download! Use it in your classroom and share with your colleagues. For more free lessons like this one, visit our Lessons Page and download them all!

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I read your post- I too was surprised at how much the kids LOVED choosing and gluing items. It’s a great way for the littles to practice those fine motor skills.

    I’ve done this with upper level students…each does one 10×10″ square and then I install them together as one piece—-very Nevelson-esque!

      What a great idea. I’ve never thought of doing a collaborative piece this way. I bet it looks awesome!
