Kindergarten Ladybug Pinch Pots

Kindergartners started this lesson by talking about shape vs form. 

We then read "The Grouchy Ladybug" by Eric Carle.

Step by step, using air dry clay students first made a pinch pot, they added a head, and poked in eyes with the back of a pencil.  They then divided the pinch pot with a line to make the wings and by rolling small balls and flattening them on the ladybugs body they made spots. I poked in holes and glued in pipe cleaners for antennas.

To add color students used a black and red oil pastel.  They then used a mixture of watered down tempera paint to get any remaining white spaces.  They were topped off with a coat of clear acrylic.
