Kindergartners at Richmond Elementary had tea with The Queen today--our very own Mrs. Layton! Students sipped delicious tea from teacups that had created in art using the pinch pot technique. While enjoying their tea, the children illustrated on their "plate" what foods they wished we were enjoying along with our tea.
During this unit, the children learned all about clay: what it is, where it comes from, the process of creating with clay, AND what things we see in our day to day lives that are made from clay. Our tea party today carried a meaningful lesson for my students as well: your artwork work is real and useful too!
