While 3rd grade was busy making clay snowmen, 2nd graders were busy learning all about PENGUINS! After drawing penguins, they created their own little clay penguin. More pictures to come.

This being the coldest winter in AGES, it's appropriate that 3rd graders created ceramic snowmen! (snow people, to be correct). It's an easy ease into ceramics after a year off. First, we looked at photos of real snowmen, (since we have no snow here). We then practiced rolling balls, harder for some than you would think.Kids learned the skill of "scoring", joining two pieces of clay. Then the real fun began as they added creative details to their little snow-people.
