4th Grade Creatures

For the past two weeks, the 3rd-5th graders at Liberty Point have either used or prepared to use the clay of the earth. Ms. Billingslea’s 4th grade class especially has had an opportunity to try two different kinds of clay, one being “black” clay, which appears chocolate brown until fired at a Cone 6, which is VERY hot (over 2000 degrees Fahrenheit)! After firing, the clay matures to a gorgeous, rich, brownish black. We can’t wait to finish our clay and fire it!

  1. Your students are very creative. I have enjoyed looking at their projects. We have red clay herein Middle TN. It is very sticky when I try to wash it off of puppy paws.
