|I have great display space just outside my roomfor 3D work!|
I don't truly know the reason, but I seem to change my third grade clay project nearly every year. 4th grade has always done castles, but third grade has had four entirely different clay projects in the five years I have been at Thomas.
This year, I decided to have my students make coil pots. It was a construction technique that I don't teach to the other grade levels so it made sense. My biggest reason for wanting to have my students create coil pots is because I really wanted to have kids plant seeds and grow something in the pots. After the pots were glazed, I filled each pot with potting soil and gave each student a choice of seeds to plant. I think these turned out really nicely and my students are super excited about their little plants.
