Various forms of Kinetic Art have been taking over my classroom! Kindergarteners will create two projects during their Kinetic Art Unit, the videos posted above show the movement their first works of art make. Using 4 pieces of paper, and four brass pins, my K-1 students easily created these kinetic works of art.
*note: While students were working on coloring their 6"x1" rectangular segments I came around with a hole punch and punched one hole at the end and one hole in the middle of their strips. Unless extremely pointy, brass fasteners stubbornly avoid piercing through the paper without a starter hole.
