Paper Line Sculptures with Kindergarten

I usually start the year with kindergartners learning about and using lines.  In previous years we have made line paintings and line sculptures with wire and pipecleaners. 

Another fun project we made was line windsocks by rolling up line paintings and adding tissue paper streamers.

We’ve done line drawings (check out what my old blog used to look like before I moved it over to this website.)

This year I was reminded by Cassie Stephens of a project I used to do a long time ago.. paper line sculptures.   This project is great for the kinders because it develops fine motor skills, teaches paper manipulation, introduces types of lines and the concept sculpture.  We started the lesson by reading the book Lines That Wiggle.


I gave the students pre-cut paper strips and a piece of paper for a base.  I demonstrated how to curl and twist the paper, how to make zig-zags and spirals and how to glue the papers so they stick up.
