Wearable Art

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 elping 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!
Workgin together to share ideas.

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: I liked making the lantern and putting in the glow sticks because it glowed.

It was really hard when: using the pipe cleaners to stick the moths to the lantern.

Something that really helped me was: doing lots of thinking and my mum helped me with my making.

Something new I learned was: it is hard to get my ideas form my brain onto the paper when I am designing.

Wow Jack! You had a clear vision of what you wanted to create and you worked hard to achieve it. You had loads of great ideas but did find it tricky to capture them on paper. When we woked together you could share explain your thinking and with support you created a great plan. You had to change your plan a little as you went to make it work and this is all part of the technology process (starting with planning, and then some creating, changing, creating and fixing). What great learning Jack!  
I bet you had a great time sharing your learning with mum.

  • I have the English and Māori words on my poster
  • I can sing a simple waiata (song) in Te Reo Māori about the parts of the body

My favourite part was: working with my buddy because he helped me a lot.

It was really hard: because there were lots of kids who wanted to use the poster at the same time.

Something that really helped me was: my buddy and the Te Tinana poster.

Something new I learned was: the body parts song in māori.

I am pleased that you enjoyed working with your buddy and that he helped you in your learning. You have created a poster with more than 6 body parts labelled and the font and colours you have chosen make sure that the poster is clear. Remember to use the success criteria to help make sure you complete all of the task.
