Pop Art Sandwich

Giant food is a favorite subject for my fourth graders.   This 18″ x 24″ sandwich was created during our study of  Claus Oldenburg.  Students viewed and discussed his  Pop Art sculptures.  They learned how his early jobs influenced his giant hamburger soft sculpture.  Groups brainstormed sandwich fillings before getting started.  Meats, cheeses, veggies and sauces were were cut from colored paper.  Repetition and contrast were stressed.   Students waited to glue until all pieces were cut and arranged.
