Paper Curling Relief Shapes

 It's was the end of the school year and I am OUT of EVERYTHING! So, what's Ms. Meggles to? Paper curling of course! I knew that I was saving all those paper scraps for something! Our Missouri GLE says, "Create an original low relief paper artwork by manipulating paper. (EG curling, folding, tearing, and cutting)", so I am on target too. Students really worked on motor skills to create the curls around pencils, markers, fingers, paper clips, or by pulling them across CLOSED scissors. The results were really cool, very colorful, and the kids were super proud of them!

We looked at some amazing examples of 3-D and 2-D paper art to give us inspiration. Start here: for ideas!
