Wings of the Nike
Grade Level: 2, 3, 4, 6, 6, 7
Not just a brand name, Nike is also an ancient goddess and one of the world’s most celebrated sculptures. Also known as Winged Victory or Nike of Samothrace, she is considered a masterpiece not just because of her drapery and pose, but because of the widespread, windswept wings unfurled behind her. In this lesson plan, students can create a pair of life-sized wings and then envision where those wings can take them and what personal triumph they might achieve!
