Setting out different types of wire with the plasticine inspired the children to create some interesting sculptures. We added many different weights of wire.
Some of the wire was easier to manipulate. Heavier wire required more strength, but held it's shape better and could bear more weight.
Some children used bits of plasticine to hold their sculptured pieces together.
Others incorporated the wire into their plasticine creations.
Shaping wire around a pencil resulted in spirals of wire.
Noah created a sculpture which brought 'electricity down the wire and to the electrical place.'
The finest wire was similar to a heavy thread. It became tangled easily...but was awfully fun to snip!
