Beads and buttons are fun to make, especially by children who love hands-on learning, but clay can also be used to explore any academic subject. Here are just a few ideas to get your imagination started:
- Create letter and number shapes for alphabet and math learning.
- Sculpt bird heads when studying how bird beaks are shaped differently fo rdifferent purposes.
- Make a model of a Mesopotamian ziggurat, a Mayan temple, an adobe dwelling, or an Egyptian pyramid.
