5th Grade: Exploring History Through Art
Men in the Seabees used mixed media to create plaques to represent themselves. The plaques were often representations of where the men were from in the United States, the type of jobs they performed for the Navy, or illustrated where they were stationed overseas. In small groups, fifth grade students will assemble a found object sculpture (as assemblage) or a mixed media two-dimensional composition that reflects who they are and communicates a theme. Students are encouraged to bring a recyclable object or special item from home that may be repurposed as part of the art piece.
