Grades K-4 worked on this collaborative project. We first studied the artist Dale Chihuly, whose medium is glass. We spent a couple of months collecting plastic drinking bottles. Students in grades K-2 peeled labels and then painted and cut the bottles into simple forms. Students in grades 3 and 4 cut more complex forms and assembled the bottles into their final configuration.
