5th graders will be starting out making a pinch pot bowl then changing it into the animal of their choice.
Students will use the Scratch and Attach method to make sure the clay stays connected.
Once they have completed making their animal out of clay, I bisque fire the animal after I let them dry for about a week.
When they get their animals back, we glaze! Students may choose 3 glaze colors plus black and white for the eyes.
I'm in my 6th year teaching art in Becker, MN. Time has really flown by! Wowza!
