This week, students in 5/6W were introduced to a new item called, Plastimake (www.plastimake.com . )
What is Plastimake? Think a marriage between glass blowing and play dough. In the spirit of a picture speaks a thousand words, watch these speaking pictures from Plastimake:
Each session was in a very controlled environment due to the use of hot water, and group numbers were small.
When we were introduced to the concept of Plastimake, most initial reactions were of confusion and curiousity. Eventually the connection of "soft, bouncy play dough" was made and after a few minutes of playing around with a wad of plastic goo, ideas jumped into our heads of what we'd like to make.
Everyone was given one dessert spoon of Plastimake, which on paper sounds like a small amount, but it was really a good size for our initial use.
We made items such as snakes, bones, turtles, small cups, fish and snails. Did we miss something in our list? Check out the pictures below to see what we got up to.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work and we pay our respects to the Elders both past and present.
