Recycled Cardboard City

We had the best time today making a Cardboard City!

We have been studying relief sculptures in clay and continued in Cardboard. Lowly cardboard became a golden material as kids sifted through it to find the perfect pieces. Some groups worked together to create different buildings in the city. There is a church, a hotel, and lots of houses. It was the perfect group project for this "active" class of mostly boys because it allowed for independent creation and selective collaborations. In the end, without prompting, one boy put some buildings in the center of the room to see how they looked together, everyone followed his lead. So easy, so engaging, and so very creative.

Wow, this is purely 100% creative and original. I have never seen anything like this before. I simply like your design and idea of it. I was also inspired by your words of encouragement on your post. It likewise reminded of my objectives that I often forget. Thanks for the inspiration! God Bless!

This a great idea, so full of creativity and independent problem solving. It would make a great set for a stop animation film. There is a great app called imotion hd that I use with students. Nice work!

I love this! How did the students cut the cardboard?

Kiara! They used our old ratty scissors that have been replaced in 5 years due to budget! I precut squares, triangles and rectangles of all sizes as well to keep the frustrations to a minimum! Now I need to do a mini grant for scissors.
