The 5th/6th graders made fabric and fiber representations of microorganisms. This is a great tie-in to Science class. These are actually going to be displayed in a real art exhibition! To make a fiber microorganism, the 5/6s are cutting a large piece of felt into a desired shape. Then, they are layering other shapes of patterned fabric or solid color felt on top. These shapes are glued together and were embellished with stitching, beading and sequins (if desired.) The students looked at pictures of microorganisms, but were allowed to use their creative license while making their microorganism. Check out this link for the "Our Tiny Friends and Foes" exhibit.
