Summer School Session 2: Off to a bang

We are now into the second two week session of summer school.  With my new group of kiddos we started out with the bird bath project again- it's such a fun and cute project.  On day two I showed the students two different ways to make a container.  

One way was using rectangles and squares to create a box and the other way was to connect a long rectangle together to create a cylinder.  Both techniques use the slab rolling construction method. 

We used rulers and rolling pins to help keep our clay slabs an even thickness.  We went through a ton of clay!

Some students choose to create mugs so they added handles instead of lids which was a nice personal touch.  :)

Tomorrow's project: Coiling.
