My 3rd-8th grade students made these as a warm up for clay coil pots this week..I underestimated just how much middle school students would love Model Magic! Next week, they'll try it with real clay.
One of my best ideas this year..... I invested in a 4x6 canvas board for each student to use as a clay "bat" to work on and transport their artwork on. I got them for under 50 cents each and I'll be able to reuse them every year.
