After my grade 6’s had made their 2D figure in an environment, they created a 3D figure with an animal of their choice.

The brief :

Person must be sitting and stable.

Animal must be warm-blooded.

Animal and person must be fused (joined) so that one does not go missing from the other when they are dry.

Lesson 1 – for the basics of both animal and person.

Lesson 2 – for the details and refining (using clay tools, toothpicks, tongue depresses and water).

Those children who did not make one or other figure in the first lesson did not get more clay in the second but had to creatively make a plan.

The lesson was success.

The students peer assessed at the end of the 2nd lesson and I kept the best for the 3rd term exhibit.  I really hope they last since we do not have a kiln to fire them.
