6th grade Suits of Armor

We’re finishing up the year over here in Seoul and one of the final projects my 6th graders have been working on are these suits of plate armor.  We learned about texture, relief sculpture and aluminum tooling foil repousse!  This is a project that I taught in Honduras, but it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to squeeze it into the curriculum again.  I’m glad I found time this year.  I love how they turned out!  And I also love that all of my high school students have been oohing and ahhing over them for the last week.  It’s fun to be able to tell the 6th graders that the high school kids are impressed by their work.
