An introduction to pinch pots was the basis for this fun lesson with my 2nd grade classes.
Once I demonstrated the pinch pot methods, students placed their pots on the side for the mouth of their monster. Other than a little information about slipping and scoring to keeps parts together, the kids were on their own imaginations for this one! Anything goes! (anything went? since we're finished?)
Here's a photo wall for you.
After firing we painted them with tempera cakes which the kids have all unanimously agreed they like much better than the wet tempera in cups. They like the colors and the easy way to use them.
(this tray has a yellow "day 3" tab)
A quick shot of clear sealant (which I apply outside) to give them a little shine and projects will be coming home this week :)
