The “What Am I?” Rubberband Project

Rubberband projectA recent donation of old rubber bands was the inspiration for this project today. Students were given an empty CD case, white paper insert, Sharpie markers, and of course rubber bands. What they made out of them was up to their own imagination.

1. White paper inserts that fit into a CD case and Sharpie markers were handed out. The challenge for students was to draw a background for whatever their rubber bands were to be: curly hair, spaghetti, snakes. All options were open and discussed before beginning.


2. When complete, the rubber bands were placed on top of the drawing. Students had to figure out how many to place on the paper so that they filled the space, but didn’t keep the CD case from closing.
Thanks so much to Claire, a 1st grader, for letting me share her beautiful artwork that brings a smile to my face!
