5th and 6th Grade Art
This week in art we focused on using the new 3-D doodler pens. The students were beyond excited to be the first to try the new tools. I decided to just let them explore and get a feeling for how the tools work for one period. The following class they focused their efforts on constructing a 3-dimensional model of a DNA strand. This ties into the unit they are studying in science. We had some successful attempts and some valiant efforts. The best part of using the new tools was the discussion we had in class about technology. Does it help? Does it make our lives better? What do we give up when we use technology over more traditional methods? I listened to many different view points and the students had a lot to say on the subject.
