1st Grade Pinch Pots

The 1st graders created pinch pots for their first clay project of the year. Each student got a piece of clay and shaped it into a ball. Then, they made a hole in the middle of the ball and used their fingers to pinch the clay from both the outside and the inside. The students pinched the clay, then turned the pot, then pinched the clay again. Around and around they went until they had a well formed pinch pot. Using wooden skewers, the students then carved designs into the clay. Once the clay dried, they used bright, glossy paint to add color to their pinch pots. They did a fantastic job
