5 Jewelry Techniques to Use in the Art Room - The Art of Ed

As art teachers, we know this is far from the truth. Sometimes the best way to display artwork for all to see is by wearing it. Have you ever tie-dyed or created silkscreen t-shirts with your students? If you have, you’ll find your students wearing their art for months to come. Another way to encourage the use of wearable art is through jewelry making. Not all art teachers see a place for jewelry in the classroom. 1. When discussing jewelry as crafts, the idea of the friendship bracelet probably comes to mind first. 2. Working with resin in the classroom can often be overlooked because of budgetary issues. 3.

If you’re looking for a way to use up scraps of construction paper, creating paper pendants is just what you need. Curiosity Machine. Challenges: Science, Engineering, Math, and Logic. Life Vest Challenge. Lesson Focus Lesson explores the engineering behind life vests or personal flotation devices and the challenges met by these devices.

Life Vest Challenge

Students work in teams to design and build a flotation device out of everyday materials that can keep an unopened can of soup or vegetables afloat in a bucket of water or sink for a minute. They design their life vest, build and test it, evaluate their designs and those of classmates, and share observations with their class. Age Levels: Objectives Learn about engineering design and redesign.Learn about personal floatation devices (PFDs).Learn how engineering can help solve society's challenges.Learn about teamwork and problem solving.

Anticipated Learner Outcomes As a result of this activity, students should develop an understanding of: engineering designsafety and societyteamwork Lesson Activities Students explore how engineers have solved societal problems such as developing and improving equipment that helps save lives in water emergencies.
