Re: [art_education] Need Ceramic Lesson Plan for middle School
- Rebecca,My kids seem to like making ceramic rattles. Make two pinch pots, add some clay pieces to the inside, attach them together to form a ball. The clay pieces inside rattle after it's been fired. Then the kids have to turn the rattle into something. One student right before christmas made a "fat elf". It was hysterical. He added pointy ears, hat, pointy shoes, etc. He had a lot of fun. They can learn about the pinch pot process, applique process, coils, scoring, and so on.Kelli in NE

I have two classes that have basically becoming a dumping ground for students.I have a mix of 6th-8th grade EC students, and a mixture of 7th grade related-arts rotational students. They are small classes (less than 8), but all over the place as far as ability goes. Any suggestions?I have clay, slab roller, glazes galore, and a kiln so materials are no problem.Thanks!!!
