Encompassing a wide variety of techniques and styles, Kinetic Art is designed to incorporate motion. Movement may be caused by touch, by wind currents, by water flow, or by mechanical means. This lesson plan describes a method for creating a simple wind-driven sculpture that may be a springboard for inventing more complex designs at higher grade levels. Students design a rotary hub and spinning blades with stacked wooden beads and soft wire. When a direct air current is applied to metallic paper "sails," the sculpture blades gently turn.
