Becoming Sculptors to Learn the Writing Process
How is a Sculptor like a Writer?
Mrs. Johns 4th grade classes tried to answer this question while participating in a fun play doh activity. The students took on the role of a sculptor as the teacher talked them through a process to create a final product. The process for a sculptor to create a piece of art is the same as for a writer to write a paper: Prewriting, Drafting, Revising, Editing, and Publishing. The students created unique pencil holders as they were engaged and learning the writing process.
