Clay Creature Jars! 4th & 5th Grade

Here Comes the clay

Fourth and fifth graders LOVED the Northern Clay Company’s Teaching Artist and project.  Thanks to a grant for our school, they sent a wonderful artist, Abigail Cooper, to work with the kids. Abby and I worked together to come up with a fun and challenging activity. They provided their own supplies and even fired all of it off-site in their huge kilns! Awesome!

The only requirements for this project were to have a lid, bottom and make it into some kind of creature of choice.
