1st Grade Clay Turtles

1st grade recently finished their first clay project.  For this project, they learned that clay comes from the earth and that there are many different kinds of clay.  Students started by learning how to make a pinch pot, one of the simplest clay forms.  Legs and a head were then added to the upside down pinch pot to create a turtle.  They were painted with watercolor paints after they had been fired.
