The 3rd graders have been coming up with their favorite memories, which turned out to be challenging!  According to one student, “we can’t have favorite memories yet, we’re still too young!”  They have carefully re-creating these stories in clay, and after vacation, they will glaze them.  Some of the memories of the students include:  going on a ‘boys’ camping trip with dad and brother; getting a new kitten; spending Christmas in a hotel; learning how to ski; having a birthday party.  The big challenges with this clay project were correctly attaching the clay together, using texture, and showing detail.   Here are some pictures of their sculptures, pre-glazing:
