Here are a few photographs of the projects my 5th graders completed – our glove and prototype project. These are a bit higher quality (not the highest as my room has terrible lighting) but you can definitely see the creativity. Students designed a glove and used multiple materials to make a prototype (model) of what they would sell to a company for production. The tags you see included a name, price and reasons to buy with options for bar codes, warranties, etc.
These turned out great. At our Fine Art’s Night, I had parents say “We never got to do this in school!” which means I was doing something exciting but of course, I welcomed them to join in on the fun next time!
