Background For Teachers:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Put students into small groups of 4 - 5 people. Give each group several colors of construction paper, scissors, and glue. (If you don't have enough scissors and glue, the groups can share.)
Explain to the students that using only paper, scissors, and glue, they are to make any creation they want. First they need to choose one paper to use as a base and then use the other paper any way they want. The creation can be flat or raised from the paper. Just use your imagination! (each year the students have been more creative)
After they are all finished, allow time for students to talk about what they have made and analyze their own creations.
The groups then come together and, choosing a spokesperson, will explain their creation to the rest of the class.
After the students share with each other, they go back into their own groups. Using their own creation, they choreograph a movement combination representing the emotional stimuli and qualities of movement they see in their creation. Stress to the students that they aren't supposed to act out the creation.
The students will perform their movement combinations for the rest of the class.
