4th Grade Insects

The 4th grade students recycled old egg cartons to create these insect sculptures.  Each student started with a 3 egg section of the carton.  We covered the cartons in celluclay (a pulpy material that when mixed with water can be applied like clay and dried hard like paper mache).  Once dry, we poked holed with unfolded paperclips and added pipe-cleaner and wire legs, wings, and antennas.  The finishing touches were made with colorful tempera and googly eyes.
