Ceramic sculpting/ painting and potato clock theory

For this week, I decided to use air dry clay for the activity. The clay works by wetting it to mold then letting it dry to harden. The goal of this project was for the students to create items that have practical use. Prior to sculpting as a class we brainstormed different things they thought they could make where they came up with things like bowls, spoons, jewelry etc. The class made their creations, but while we waited for the pieces to dry to pass the time we did a potato clock project. This is where you use a potato to power a clock. Although not everyone’s design turned out how they expected every one was proud of what they made.
