3rd Grade Ceramic Animals and Habitat

3rd grade recently finished a pretty intense study of animal adaptation and camouflage.  In art, students built on knowledge of animals and adaptation gained in the regular classroom by choosing an animal to sculpt out of clay.  Students began by looking at many animals that show the ability to camouflage in their habitat.  Each student chose an animal to sketch and then create out of clay.  As the clay was drying and being fired, each student created a habitat out of cardboard and construction paper.  This was a very successful project.  It will be on display in the commons for the Thomas Art Show on May 13th!
