Out of This World Art Mobiles

Our mobiles are finished and they are lovely.  Third graders created a set of (at least) three, 3-dimensional planets from the painted papers they created below.
We strung our planets together with floral wire and hooked all the ends together to make a mobile.  Rocket ships were added.  Kids quickly used what they learned to create 3-D fins for their rockets by notching and sliding the pieces together.
It was difficult to get good photos of this project because they didn't hang around long.  Kids took them home the same day.
If you would like to a planet mobile hop on over to Se7en.  Complete direction on how the planets are put together can be found there.
