Not sure how to introduce clay or ceramics into your classroom? Use these easy to follow instructions accompanied by rich visuals to teach any student from beginner to advanced!
In the provided lesson package bundle, all my examples and student body are 9-12th graders. Any lesson of mine can be adapted to fit the elementary-middle school classroom. One of the very first things my students learn how to do in my classroom is to make a slab, then a slab vessel, "Making a Clay Slab Cylinder". This is the perfect blank canvas for many of my projects! Beginner students in ceramics 1 all complete "Ceramic Clay Lanterns". In ceramics 2 students familiar with construction methods learn to manipulate and alter a basic form into another object, in this case, "Gourd-geous Gourds".
In this bundle you'll receive:
- Step-by-step How to create a slab vessel using found/recycled materials!
- "Ceramic Clay Lanterns" lesson package with rich visuals, teacher and student slideshow, 2 rubrics and several student examples
- "Ceramic Clay Gourd-geous Gourds" lesson package with rich visuals, teacher and student slideshow, 2 rubrics and several student examples
