2nd Grade Ceramic Bugs

After recently finishing a bug project with an emphasis on habitat, 2nd graders dove into making clay bugs.  This has become a favorite project for 2nd grade students.  Ceramic vocabulary such as scoring and wedging were learned as 2nd graders are beginning to make increasingly complex sculptures.  The legs and wings are made out of wire and were glued in after the bugs had been fired and painted.  They are on display in the commons and will be there until the spring Art Show on May 13th!
