Fun with Texture
First grade students had fun learning about texture by pressing objects into slabs of clay. It is always so exciting to see the impressions that the different objects make. Some of the favorites were the plastic bugs and bead necklaces. This is part of our texture unit. We created rubbings from objects around the room and texture plates, these clay bowls and also experimented with creating textures on paper by rolling, crumpling and folding. We used the textured paper to create relief sculptures.
