FACT SHEET

DTEK/VS DESIGN TECHNOLOGY VIDEO SERIES
ART PRODUCTION FORMAT

PROGRAM: 100-0400 BASIC SHAPES OF INDUSTRY
UNIT: 0413 INTROD
0416 MOBILES and STABILES

GENERALIZATIONS: 4/8

The BASIC SHAPES OF INDUSTRY are all around us: CIRCLES, SQUARES, and TRIANGLES. In this game of recognition, it is our job to discover these shapes as they exist hidden in the classroom, in the home, and in the general environment.

TERMINOLOGY:

BASIC = simplest/beginning
SHAPE = appearance of an object
INDUSTRY = manufacturing/constructing
COLLAGE = gluing down arranged objects
MOBILE = something that moves, e.g. automobile
STABILES = something which does not moves

MATERIALS:

Tag or Chipboard sizes: 2" to 6"squares (ready for trimming)
Construction Paper (black)
Construction Paper: Primary YELLOW, RED, and BLUE
Glue Sticks
Scissors
Old Magazines/Newspapers/Catalogues
Wire coat hangers

CONSTRUCTION: MOBILE

In advance, students will construct a CIRCLE, SQUARE and TRIANGLE from a 6" x 6" piece of tag or chipboard and trim to shape. Laminate appropriate colors to boards. One side of circle is to be primary yellow, the square primary red, and the triangle primary blue. On the other side, have students laminate a copy of a "found" object that represents that shape. Punch a hole in "center" of shape; cut and thread a string through hole; tie to coat hanger, and hang from ceiling at intervals around room. Add shapes at different string lengths for variety of different heights. Balance shapes on hanger by positioning.

PROCESS/SKILL DEVELOPMENT: SHAPE/COLOR/CONSTRUCTION

CIRCLES: use compass or templates, i.e. can lids, bottle tops
SQUARES: use rulers for accurate measurements
TRIANGLES: use rulers, angles to construct an equilateral
COLORS: add secondary colors to future shapes

FOLLOW UP ACTIVITY:

CONSTRUCTION: STABILE

Construct a STABILE by cutting slots into centers of each shape. Slot shapes together in a variety of arrangements of build-ups, and in any direction. Mount these arrangements on firm chipboard bases, and anchor with WHITE GLUE!

VERBAL REINFORCMENT CHANT:

"Circles, Squares, and Triangles, are the Basic Shapes of Industry"
