1st Grade Clay Turtles

1st graders recently finished making clay turtles.  This is the first clay project most of them have worked on, so it is relatively simple.  I have kids make them in two days, although it would potentially be possible to finish them in one.  The first day, students make a simple pinch pot.  On day two, they add legs, a head, and a tail.  Once they are fired, the turtles are painted with watercolor.  A few legs and heads tend to fall off, but it isn't something a little hot glue can't fix!
