Carving Tools at Mount Rushmore

This Carving Tools at Mount Rushmore lesson plan also includes:

Mount Rushmore contains the faces of four great American leaders, but it also shows the power of artistic ability. Learners will examine the tools, techniques, and reasons why Mount Rushmore was constructed. They focus their attention on how the sculptors had to use very specific tools at different points in the project to achieve their desired results. They each sculpt a small figure using considerations for the design process such as, planning, final product, and which tools they'll need to achieve the desired end results.
