Learning about the World through Modeling: Sculptural Ideas for School and Home

USD $24.00

What a wonderful book! The author and illustrator have managed to combine a delicious array of modeling projects with a thorough discussion of the cognitive, social and personal benefits of the act of transforming a plastic material into an object of beauty.

You’ll find suggestions for modeling from first grade through high school and beyond (including – and I’m so very happy to see this spelled out and illustrated – the exercise of transforming a sphere of clay successively into all the Platonic solids!), beautifully illustrated and clearly explained.
