Paper Castles

This second grade lesson incorporated architecture, art history, sculpture, and collage.  Students viewed a variety of castles and learned how and why castles were built.  They  learned how to roll cylinders and join paper with glue and slits.  Details were added with cut paper.


Clay Castles Grade 4

Castles are a favorite subject of fourth graders.  Add clay and metallic paints, and you have a project sure to be a success for all.  This castle was planned on graph paper, then outlined on a slab of clay.  Found objects were used to impress a variety of textures.  Arches, windows and doors were added from scraps.  The striking finish was done in two steps.  First, the entire castle was carefully painted with black acrylics.  When dry, metallic paint was dabbed on with a piece of sponge.  The flags are held in place with painted toothpicks.
