PDF | 2 pages | Grades: 3 - 5

A fun art activity to explore organic shape.

Use this teaching resource when studying shape as one of the Elements of Visual Art.

Students use their knowledge of organic shapes to create a mobile. After searching for organic shapes in artwork, they cut similar shapes from colored cardstock and hang them from a coat hanger. Students may add pipe cleaners and beads for additional decoration.
