Product Description

(Meets Math Across the Curriculum requirements.) Students explore the process of converting 2 dimensional (2D), flat objects into 3 dimensional (3D) fully round objects by carefully cutting and gluing the included patterns.
This project contains 5 ready-to-print patterns that range from very simple to fairly complex. When printed on bond paper or card stock they can be decorated using various media (crayons, colored pencil, markers, watercolors, etc.) before cutting requiring students to visualize the completed three dimensional object while still 2D.
Concepts Addressed: Mathematics in Art; Patterning in Art; Two-dimensional and Three-dimensional objects; Relationship of Edges and sides; Craftsmanship and Patience.
Skills (Techniques) Addressed: Scissors use; Assembly Methods for Papers (tabs, glue, tape); Patterning.
Minnesota State Educational Standards Addressed:
Create: Create original two- and-three-dimensional artworks in a variety of artistic contexts. Revise artworks based on the feedback of others and self-reflection and artistic intent.
Demonstrate: Demonstrate the characteristics of the tools, materials and techniques of various two-and-three-dimensional media for intentional effects in original artworks. Create a single, complex artwork or multiple artworks to express ideas.
