Lesson Plan

Flying Fish Mobiles – Kinetic Sculpture

This Flying Fish Mobiles – Kinetic Sculpture lesson plan also includes:

Budding artists experiment with balance and movement as they learn about Alex Calder and his kinetic sculptures. They'll view several of Calder's pieces and review biographical information, then they'll work through the artistic process as they create Calder-like sculptures. Tip: There is an intrinsic link between balance, weight, and measurement; explore these ideas with your students as you allow them to experiment with materials. Have them take observation notes that relate all three concepts.
