I have been teaching middle school for almost 10 years and have accumulated oodles of ideas! I also have my BFA in 3D studies, with a focus in ceramics. These are some of my favorite clay projects with bonus slides of my best tips and tricks!
These projects are each labeled with suggested grades.
Each project includes a photo of a finished student project, materials, and directions!
