I used to teach a sculpture project with 5th graders that was so popular
that a few middle school kids would come back on their own time to make them
when I was teaching the unit--Fuzzy Monsters.  It was basically a variation
on a wire sculpture that resulted in a fully movable furry monster that
reminded me of Muppets.  This was one of my most popular projects, and often
requested by incoming 5th graders.  I had the middle schoolers who were
interested make their monsters, and because they were fully movable, we
would make stop action films with them.  I have shared the plans for these
monsters before on this list, and will again if you are interested.  You may
have to wait a little--we will be gone for around a week for the holidays,
and away from my computer.
