Clay Pout Pout Fish

2nd Graders read the story the Pout Pout Fish. We then made a stencil drawing of a Pout Pout Fish on manilla railroad board paper. Students cut it and had a tracer for their slab fish. We reviewed clay vocabulary, slab, score, and slip. We also discussed what texture meant, both actual and visual texture. Students rolled out their slab of clay, traced their fish shape on it and used cutting tools to cut it out. Students then used stamps and a drawing tool to create texture and details on their fish. From their left over slab they created the eyes, mouth and fin and used proper attaching techniques. Lastly, they glazed using Magic Glazes. Easy clay in a day project that goes over beginning techniques and vocabulary.
