Mini Clay Masks, 4th Grade

 I found the idea for this lesson on, http://www.johnpost.us/clay-lessons/clay-mask/clay-masks.html. He has a lot of really great clay ideas on his website. 
 To begin, I made plaster molds out of apple containers.  Using a slab of clay, students used these plaster molds to form the mask. Then, students added details to their mask.  Some students made animals, some made monsters, and some made aliens. 
Lastly, students glazed their artwork. 
These are wonderful! and the students are very proud of them.
