The idea for this lesson plan was inspired by sculpted paper pieces in my classroom at a time when I was reading Harry Potter.

This lesson plan will give students ideas of how they can put their paper making skills to use creating an interesting objet d’art and sculpture. Make examples or images of handmade paper sculptures available. For the purpose of this lesson, I will assume they already have some experience preparing pulp and pulling (or pouring) sheets of handmade paper.
