This presentation introduces your students to the idea of recycled art and junk modelling. Firstly it takes a general look at recycled art, looking at a range of different types of junk e.g. bottle tops, plastic bottles, cans, plastic bags and even toys! It then looks more closely at the work of the inspirational robot sculptor Gordon Bennett.
It ends by showing examples of card junk robots and includes assessment criteria.
You could provide junk or better still encourage your students to collect their own. The last page of the presentation details all sorts of things they could collect. This page could be printed off and sent home so parents can help.
I love how this encourages students to look at the world in a different and creative way!
