Tuckahoe School

Two fifth grade classes have been discovering and learning about living cells and kinetic sculptures. Students explore the differences between animal and plant cells while learning what organelles are within both. In science they studied the scientific terms and in art class they made the connection with other artistic terms for kinetic sculptures, which are called mobiles. Art teacher Barbara Imperiale has talked about the 20th century American artist Alexande Calder and his creations of metal and recycled materials used to build his artistic mobiles. Students created their own representations by creating organelles out of found materials, weighing the different pieces and recording the mass differences. Meanwhile, students are testing the balance ratio of different parts and using balancing scales with gram cubes. In the final part of the project, students will construct kinetic cell mobiles with two parts of mini mobiles being counter-balanced and organelles will be represented with their function in mind.
