The creative inventions of Leonardo daVinci inspire imaginative problem-solving as you design, construct, and paint your own invention.
Invite small groups of students to study Leonardo daVinci's drawings of flying machines. When were these inventions conceptualized? How are they similar to today's flight vehicles? How do they differ?
In preparation for re-creating a daVinci-like model, students collect recyclables such as wood and foam produce trays. Sketch ideas for an invention made with these recycled items. Start with an idea and fit the materials to it, or look at the items and decide what to make.
Students arrange materials in the shape of their inventions. Glue parts together with Crayola® School Glue, using masking tape to hold the structure in place temporarily if necessary. Dry overnight, then remove the tape.
Students use Crayola Model Magic to add details to inventions. Dry 24 hours.
Ask students to cover their work area with recycled newspaper. Paint inventions with Crayola Tempera Paint. Mix colors to achieve the effects desired.
On an index card, student groups write the name, description, and instructions for using their invention with Crayola Washable Markers.
