I pushed my clay unit off until after February Break this year. Here we are at week four and the greenware is going into the kiln. I taught a few of the old standbys with the kids and threw in a few new projects this year as well. Third grade explored the Egyptian burial process and are creating Canopic Jars. We stepped into Ancient Greece for fourth grade and they are created urns to be decorated with slip or underglaze with geometric patterns. Clay is a favorite unit of the year. In about a month I will post some of the completed projects.
Canopic jars - the Jackal was a very popular choice
