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.
