Alexander Calder in 5th Grade Art
Mrs. Wiskirchen’s 5th grade classes learned about Alexander Calder and his use of materials to create moving sculptures called Mobiles. The students learned how to balance their wire “blades” that have a “sail” that will help the sculpture move with a breath of air or pushing it with their finger. The students were really excited about the S.T.E.A.M. components and the building skills used to create their sculptures.
