::: creating endangered species
As part of the sustainability program at Croydon West Primary School …
Ruth asked the children in the junior grades to invent their own endangered species.
The challenge was to make a series of clay tiles which illustrated specific parts of their creature.
The first tile needed to show the texture of its skin.
The second was its eye …
and the third was a foot print.
When we were there the tiles were all lined up on the bench, drying out so they could be popped into the kiln. This included special clay name tags the children had made to represent their creatures.
Once fired the three tiles and name tag will be mounted. We’ll be very interested to see how – we’ll get back to you with that one.
