4th Grade, Recycled Robot Sculptures

Fourth Grade students just finished creating these unique/one of a kind, recycled robots!  We began by learning about robots, what they are, how they function, and what they are made from. Students designed their robot “prototype” with a specific function in mind. They turned their working drafts into 3D sculptures. Our 4th Grade artists were encouraged to use as many recyclable materials as possible in their creations. They were also challenged to create a sculpture that did not exceed 8’x 8″ 8″.  Students have been cutting, layering, bending, twisting, and attaching their recyclable pieces for the past few weeks. Take a look at their finished sculptures! Fourth grade really loved working on this PBL lesson!

On our last meeting day, students participated in a post-it note critique. Students enjoyed sharing their creations with their classmates.
