The Iron Man

IronMan, originally uploaded by LindaH.

Rules of course are there to be ignored :-). This post shows that art work can benefit from a more imaginative approach.This was a wonderful display done as a way of bringing the Ted Hughes classic book to life for a group of reluctant readers. Making the Iron Man himself took ages but the boys were very proud of their handy work. Details were checked with descriptions in the book. It was great for making sure they read and understood the text, could retrieve information, and just generally associated reading the book with having a great time being creative with a favourite teaching assistant. (Now sadly gone to train as an art therapist).
