Fresh out of the kiln.
3rd graders have been making these super cute trees. They start out as pointy pinch pots then they add the details. If you like these check out Mrs. Brouwer's cool trees! http://josettebrouwer.edublogs.org/2010/12/01/clay-projects-continue-2/

Last week I was trying to get my 3rd graders to make really complex color wheels. It was not going very well! I decided to abandon the wheels. But I still wanted them to play around with mixing colors and with Thanksgiving right around the corner. I decided to have them draw cartoon turkeys and make 6 feathers I only gave them yellow, red, blue black and white and asked them to make these rainbow turkeys. They had a blast and the turkeys turned out much better then the wheels. They mixed each color to create tints and shade then mixed all the colors to create the body.
