Term: 3 Year: 2008
The students in Years 4, 5 and 6 were set the task of creating a whimsical fantasy insect with the starting point of
a Poly Insect Body.
The first lesson was taken up with students designing their insect and painting the Poly body with acrylic paint in
the desired colour. The designs were based on the student’s pure imagination.
Week two the students had freedom of choice as to the media they used to construct their insect. A full range of decorative
papers and construction media were theirs for the taking. They had to decide on the method of joining and most chose PVA,
pins, and the Low Melt Glue Gun.
The students were thrilled with the creatures they created and very proud to see them on display.
Assessment of this project was based on
* Colour choice
* Joining techniques and skills
* Use of Media
