Pinch Pot Monsters (3rd & 5th Grade)

It's clay time!  I love that I have figured out how to work the kiln.  No longer am I intimidated by it.  YAY!  So here are the 3rd grade pinch pot monsters.

First students wedge the clay to get the air bubbles out.  Then students make a ball, put their thumb in the middle and start pinching and turning.

After they make a little pot (this is the body of the monster) they will slip and score the details, like eyes and teeth.

Once it's fired they get to paint them.

Check 'em out, yo!
