Pre-Kindergarten students used a ball of clay to create leaves.
We learned how to use our hands to shape the clay.
We used clay tools to create the veins of the leaves.
The students examined the details on the leaves and practiced observation drawing.
Using a clay pencil to create the veins of the leaf.
The students did well as they were encouraged to study the clay leaf carefully
before drawing it. I encouraged them to make lots of mistakes and draw over the
mistakes so they can learn more.
Student comment: "The clay gets stuck on my clay pencil."
Student comment: " My leaf is long."
Student comment: "I can draw many lines."
