Every year I have 6th grade create clay containers. The instructions are simple. The container must be large enough to hold something, it must have a lid, and they must use slab construction for the majority of the construction. I love the different ideas that the students came up with this year, so creative!
This is one of my favorite projects! I feel like the personalities of the kids really come through in this project. The kids get to choose their quote, we talk about how it should be something they either say or think frequently. They get to learn about Pop Art and Roy Lichtenstein specifically while creating this project.
