Tasty Texture Sandwiches

3rd grade artists recently explored texture by making delicious looking texture sandwiches! We began with a long piece of paper and glued pieces of wallpaper at the bottom to create a table top for our sandwich. We also added a plate or wrapper for our sandwich.
Using cardboard, students cut out a bottom bun and a top bun for the sandwich. We talked about different shapes we could use, like rectangles and semi circles. We made sure to leave a lot of space in between the bottom and top pieces of bread for lots of ingredients! 
Next class, we brainstormed a variety of sandwich ingredients, including tomatoes, cheese, salami, peanut butter, Nutella, pickles, bacon, etc. We made a long list on the board to use as reference. Students were able to choose from a variety of different materials with different colors and textures to represent sandwich ingredients. Students got very creative with how they used their materials. Sometimes, students searched for a specific material for a specific ingredient. Other times, we were inspired by the material and what ingredient it reminded us of. Here are some examples of our tall, textured sandwiches:
