Hands on Exploration
Ada works hard at her clay tea cup.
Today we worked with an all-time favorite material: clay! From mugs, to tea cups, to bowls, to a clay penguin, Explorers created many masterpieces that are now ready to be fired in the kiln.
Fletcher enjoyed creating a lever to lift his clay planet.
"Here's a way to give my planet a lift... This is how to launch it into space." - Fletcher
"This clay is so stiff that I feel like we "It's too thick." - Dagny "Feet, look!" - Yoyo
should mix it up." - Olivia
Yoyo's Clay Penguin
Today, in addition to painting keys, we painted wooden dowels - the next step in the creation of our wind chimes.
Today several friends took to sewing, both by hand and with a sewing machine. They enjoyed experimenting with different kinds of stitches and fabrics.
