Keep the kids motivated - select projects YOU would
have liked to do and you'll be just fine.
I would recommend the sculpture wire from Dick Blick
(sorry Sax). It is sold on page 379. It is 14 gauge -
a 350 ft roll - sells for only $21.99. Maybe allow for
3 ft per kid (to allow for some waste/mistakes).
My size requirement was it had to fit in their tote
trays (but I even fudged on that on occasion).
Melissa worked quite a bit larger with her Oaxacan
animals. I have done the same lesson with 3rd grade
(at the resource center) thru 8th grade.
P.S. If you don't have a Dick Blick catalog - call
800-447-8092. Sax may have it too - I just know I
ordered mine from Dick Blick. It is easy to bend - and
easy for kids to cut...and cheap!
