|We found some decorative "moss", stones and "vines" in our craft cabinet.|
The fifth graders learned how to roll a slab of clay, how to score and slip clay to attach pieces, and how to smooth forms and add texture. They applied these skills to a castle project, and their work shows they got it! They rolled a large slab, cut windows, doors and stone texture into the slab, and rolled it around a cardboard tube. I love how they built off of the basic form to add their own ideas and details. They made spires, flags, stairs, windows, draw bridges and other interesting details that make them all different. Check them out in the glass cases at the entrance to Prescott!
|They made flags out of felt and wire.|
|Some students finished early and made dragons to protect their castle.|
|Melanie made a moat and bridge.|
