imaginary animal species sculptures

It's nice having an i-phone to document some of my student art work. While the 2-D work didn't show so good when shot from the phone, I had lots of luck with the sculptures. Above are some sculptures by my soon-to-be former fifth-grade art students. We spent a while creating imaginary animals based on the skulls of actual animal species. It's been a unit I've taught for a while now, but with each year it changes some more. The sculpture part is the final phase of the lesson, if they even get to that point in the unit. I'm really pleased with how some of them turned out this year.
