the coat hanger sculpture- part 1

As a provocation, I bought in a few coat hangers, pulled out the ladder and hung them from the I-beams in our classroom. I offered a few to the children and it began to grow like a weed! 

I had to scour the building for "more, more, more, teacher!" We quickly ran out so I sent out a request to parents to bring in more. This is what it looks like now:

Later we did black line drawings of the sculpture:

Here are some of their thoughts:

-They're attached together and they hang from each other.
-It's a triangle.
-It hooks.
-It looks like candy canes. Lots of candy canes.
-I like it.
-It swings a little.

The end!
