Third Grade Art
2 Class Periods
50 minutes per class
Day 1: We use every precious minute to create this sculpture in one class period, so while we work we discuss different topics ranging from the history behind the pinch pot to how art can be decorative or functional. I have colleagues who have suggested that this would also be a great Mexican Folk Art lesson.
Step 1: Gather all supplies needed to get started. Student have a clay mat to work on, a clay needle tool, a stick, a water bucket with a small amount of water in it and a ball of clay, roughly the size of a tennis ball.
