2017 Annual TAEA Conference

Bridgette Mongeon Resources

Sculptor / Author Bridgette Mongeon was the keynote speaker at TAEA's Conference held at Moody Gardens. Bridgette Mongeon is known for her numerous sculpture commissions and her most recent commission a sculpture titled "Move One Place On," a monumental sculpture of Alice In Wonderland's Mad Hatter Tea party.

The following are some resources that Bridgette wished to share with conference attendees:

  • Free printable of the Wonderland Detective Book (Members Only). Use this with students to help find the 150 hidden items in the sculpture. I will be creating a series of YouTube videos to help teachers.
  • Free printable of dodecahedron (Members Only) and a triangle (Members Only) with Alice in Wonderland images and sayings. Use this in conjunction with the books Alice in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass. This also helps to open up a conversation about the math and geometry behind 3D Technology.
