First Grade Gets Creative at Feats of Clay
On Monday, November 5, 2018, first grade #SASAtoms asked, "How is clay made?" and more while visiting Feats of Clay in Manlius, NY. During their visit, our #SASAtoms chose a custom piece of pottery to decorate from options of race cars, emojis, dragons, lizards, snails, puzzle pieces, and more. When selecting the perfect color to paint their pottery, our #SASAtoms learned about mixing colors and why pottery must be glazed before firing. As our first graders expressed themselves creatively, they asked questions about the process. The finished masterpieces will be ready in just a few short weeks! Teaching our #SASAtoms the value of creative expression and scientific inquiry is just one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.
