This pinch pot assignment is part of my Intro to Sculpture and Ceramics curriculum. It's one of the early art projects because it covers the basic hand building technique, pinch pots, while also creating a unique and functional work of art, a working whistle.
This project pack includes:
-Lesson Plan with big idea, essential questions, national standards, step by step instructions, vocabulary, and supply list
-Pinch pot whistle how to hand out: with visual and verbal step by step instructions
-Clay wedging checklist
My students love this assignment and every year they impress me even more with their creativity. I encourage them to break out of the round whistle shape and create something new. I've seen seashells, elephants, hedgehogs, and beautiful abstract designs.
