I was super excited to display the 5th Grade Leaves today. They were too!! When researching the lesson, I found many sites that had various directions for students to follow. I combined a few ideas and I will make a few changes next year. This lesson is a keeper and it also coordinates with the student's adventure camp trip later this month!
Note to self...Next year I will:
1. Only use Terra Cotta Clay. I used white this year and terra-cotta looked much better.
2. Put the clay leaf in a bowl instead of draping it over a bowl.
3. Bisque fire the clay first, instead of using Stroke and Coat glazes. Too fragile.
Over all, I think they are beautiful!!
