Below is a sampling of the work created during 2D centers by my 5th and 6th grade students. You can see the wide variety of subject matter, media, use of techniques, and fabulously different end results.
Read more about the process of 2D centers, in 2D Centers – Part I, and the feedback from students, in Playful Learning. All in all, I am proud of my students’ work and the things they learned and accomplished during 2D centers. Right now, we are wrapping up some clay projects, and hope to end the year with one last round of centers.
After preparing an artist statement and uploading their work to their digital portfolio, See Saw, students worked together to display their work. In this photo, 6th graders are working together to make a background for their hallway display in the clear frames that are placed around the building.
Here are two such frames, filled by 6th graders’ work.
