  • Testing
  • Review
  • Implementation

Change over Time (C/T) challenges students to creatively represent learning in a tangible form; through the process of creating paper art sculptures to represent abstract concepts. C/T, a project-based learning activity, encourages students to think critically and creatively as they discover firsthand how art and science inform each other

but why
But Why?

Mae Jemison – astronaut, doctor, art collector, and dancer– advocates for integration of art and science. Jemison calls on educators to teach both art and science, and to create bold thinkers through teaching intuition and logic.

project overview
Project Overview:

We will be using the small white piece of paper to show what we are “visualizing”

The black piece of paper will be used as a photo backdrop

Cannot use any other tools

To document the process, we will take pictures of our sculptures, which will then be used to create a time-lapse video (using the iMotion HD app)

iMotion HD iPod App

Using the iMotion HD iPod App

Find and press the iMotion HD icon.

Select “new movie”.

Make sure manual is selected for options shown toward the bottom of the screen. Enter a movie title if desired (ie: Team Awesome, Fab Four, etc).

Press start to begin capturing videos.

Position the iPod until the screen is in the desired area and press the capture button to take a picture of the art.

Important: Do not press the stop button until you are finished with the video series. I will tell you when to press stop.

  • Use the same piece of paper.
  • Use all of the paper.
  • Be original!
  • There are no right or wrong answers.

**Cannot use tools (pencil, pen, scissors)

2 minutes
2 minutes
  • After 2 minutes are up, you will place your paper sculpture on the photo backdrop (black construction paper) and take a photo.
  • Discuss good photo vs. bad photo with students
  • **Remember not to hit stop

time lapse video
Time Lapse Video

After capturing the number of desired images, press the stop button twice to stop capturing images.

The app will create a time-lapse video.

To delete a frame from the movie, press the tools button to display the tool interface. Use the rewind or forward options to reach the desired image to delete. Press the delete button (the icon of a polaroid picture with a minus sign) to remove the frame.


What happened to the paper as you continued to use it over and over again?

What do you think would happen to the paper if you continued to fold it?

Can you think of other examples of objects that change over time?


How do scientists change things over time?

How have science careers changed?

What are some examples of change that have been demonstrated by scientific concepts?

What could science change in the future?

How might science careers change over the next 20 years?


Have students write a reflection after each prompt card

Ask students to justify what they are creating“I created _________ because ________”
