It’s heading towards the end of term and as usual, I’m finding myself with a few spare year 7 lessons up my sleeve. Here’s what I came up with for today’s lesson. Balsa wood sculptures!

Hot glue guns at the ready, these only took the kids about an hour and a half to construct. I gave them a heap of balsa wood, scissors and glue guns (which they had to share, but I must confess that I was very impressed with their sharing skills today). They then cut, stuck and painted. They were supposed to be abstract. What do you think of them?
