Second Grade Clay Islands

Second graders created these amazing clay islands in December that were inspired by Gregor Turk. We viewed artwork by Gregor Turk, read books about islands, reviewed past knowledge about islands, looked at aerial views of islands on the internet and finally discussed different ways to create texture using clay! Each island is unique with trees, rivers, volcanos and even a sand beach! Students listened to steel drums playing while working for inspiration! Many islands are displayed in the media center, so go take a look!
