Wearable Arts

We have been learning all about design on our way to create our wearable art garment. We started with some challenges…
1. In teams create and build the tallest tower
 
Our tower was very tall, but then it fell over...







We worked together; sharing ideas and helping each other. We have learned that it is really important to design and plan our creations before we start. This means we all know what we are trying to make.
2. Build a shelter for Leo our class bear
 
We learned that it can be very tricky to work in groups and we all have to take turns.
3. Work together to create a costume for 1 member of our team to model. 
  
Here we are in our costumes!

We remembered that it is important to design our work before we start. We also learned that we have to be careful with our materials, newspaper and tinfoil rip quiet easily.

We are going to use what we have learned to create our wearable arts garment.

Success Criteria:

  • Research and find my inspiration
  • Design and plan my garment (How I see things)
  • Follow my plan to create my garment
  • Create a garment that is going to last
  • Create a piece of art – an idea or a story or message

Reflection

My favourite part was: when I did the Glow paint because Glow paint can Glow in the dark. I liked thinking and planning because I got to share my ideas.

It was really hard when: i had to find the right materials that I needed like paper plates and yellow paint for my feet and mask.

Something that really helped me was: my mum helped me with my paper plate feet and find the fluffy coat.

Something new I learned was: that I have to plan what I need so I have everything.

Sasha, you have a lot of great ideas thank you for sharing them with us. You help us to start growing our own ideas. What great learning you have done this term,  planning and design are both very important parts of the technology process to make sure you gather your ideas and have what you need for the making. It is fantastic to share your learning with your mum. She has great ideas and it is awesome when you can work together.

Reflection

My favourite part was: I liked adding the text on the Pic collage.

It was really hard when: I think the whole thing was challenging.

Something that really helped me was: The poster that showed what's what

Something new I learned was: The body parts and how to use pic collage.

You have used the success criteria to create a poster with at lease 6 body parts labelled in English and Te Reo. Remember, when you are selecting the background and the fonts try and make sure your poster is easy to read. Pic collage can be a great tool to show your learning, I am pleased you enjoyed learning how to use it.
