Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Sculpture topic on BrainPOP Jr.


Visit a museum or art gallery together and look at different sculptures. Ask your child to choose a sculpture that inspires him or her. Have your child sketch the sculpture from different angles and take detailed notes about the construction or execution. Then allow your child to try recreating the sculpture at home. Encourage him or her to use materials that are different from that of the original artist.

Light and Sound

Sculptures can go beyond stone, wood, and metal. Many artists incorporate light and sound into their pieces. Invite your child to create a light or sound sculpture. You may want to research different examples at the library, museum, or on the Internet. Encourage your child to create a sculpture that uses colored lights or music. He or she may want to create sound effects that accompany a sculpture or record different sounds around the home.
