Class Experience

The students will learn a new hobby. They will learn how to cut an aluminum can and turn it into a work of art. In this two part lesson the students will make a rocking chair. I have another class in which we will make a vintage chair.
I used to make these chairs all the time when I was in the 6th and 7th grades. It's a fun and creative hobby! I spent hours making chairs and other can crafts, long before the Internet with pictures and instructions. I just made them up!  I wanted to share my expertise with you.
No homework, but before class starts, the students should gather the materials needed to make the rocking chair.
 2 files available upon enrollment
• 2 empty aluminum cans • Sharp scissors • Corn holder • Ruler • Permanent marker (2 colors) • Needle-nose pliers
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
observation and the completed chair
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The students will be cutting and bending aluminum with scissors and needle-nose pliers, measuring with a ruler and operating a hot glue gun, so they should be able to do this independently. Assistance might be needed for the first lesson until the students learn the curling and clamping techniques.
