4th Grade Clay Turtles

For this clay project 4th graders explored the coil technique.  We learned about slipping and scoring and how it is important when using clay.  Students first rolled a coil, slipped and scored the edges, and rolled it back up to create the shell.  Using clay tools, students then added a pattern or design on the shell.  Students used the remaining clay to add a head and legs.

To add color we first used oil pastel and went over it with watered down black tempera.
