Sculpture, Clay, Texture and Beads!
For the first project... Students rolled a ball of Mexican red clay (air dry) then we poked a wire into the clay and students threaded beads onto the wire. This was GREAT for fine motor skills! We stuck the other end into the clay to complete the project. Some students added more beads to the base... cute!
The bottom project used the same kind of clay. We used shells, sticks, and other gadgets to stamp texture into the clay. (We were discussing texture in 5th grade... this was adaptive's version!) Students then created smaller pieces which were threaded together to create a wind chime look. When dry, students painted over the top with metalic paints.
