Invasion of First Grade Sea Turtles

May 9, 2013

from Holy Cross art teacher, Mr. Long –

Spoiler alert for Moms of Holy Cross first graders – act surprised if your house is invaded by a sea turtle on Mother’s Day!

This project is building on what that we learned last year in kindergarten. The children made pinch pots last year, and this year we are taking it a step further by adding pieces of clay to the pinch pots and learning about scoring and slip. We also added patterns to our turtles’ shells, which was a main theme this year.

We learned a lot about sea turtles as well. As with all clay projects, the kids really seem to enjoy this one.
