The 1st and 3rd graders have finished their final projects of the school year.  The first graders worked hard to create mixed up animal sculptures, starting with sketches, then constructing out of clay, then glazing.  They read a lot of poems by Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky about silly animals for inspiration.

The 3rd graders finished their baskets as well.  They have been looking at traditional baskets of Native American and African tribes, as well as contemporary baskets from recycled materials.  They were impressed that baskets can be made out of belts, moss, telephone wire, potato chip bags, magazines, metal, plastic shopping bags, and more!

Some finished projects:
