Honor someone special with a handcrafted monument! Explore national and local monuments for inspiration in your design.
Monuments are constructed to honor a person or event of importance in a community or country. Research with your classmates to find examples of national and local monuments. What do these monuments stand for? Would you change anything about them if you were the designer?
Think of a special person in your life that you would like to honor with a monument. Write a short paragraph about what makes that person important to you. How can you symbolize these qualities and form a monument to represent them? Sketch out some ideas on paper with Crayola® Colored Pencils. When you’re satisfied with your design, construct the monument using Crayola Model Magic®.
MM that is fresh from the pack will stick to itself. Dried pieces can be glued together. Utilize tools around the classroom to help you mold the Model Magic. Forks, combs, straws, cookie cutters and paper clips can all be effective modeling tools. Try using a marker as a rolling pin, or carefully cutting detailed shapes with scissors.
Allow the monument to air-dry and share with the class along with the paragraph you wrote about the person you’re honoring.
