Functional to Fantastical

This presentation accompanies a pinch pot lesson plan for fifths graders. The fifth graders were introduced to the properties of clay while making a simple pinch pot. They then viewed this slide show, as well as took part in a discusion, and came up with ways to elaborate on their functional pinch pot. Students could add any features they wanted, including lids, handles, feet, or animal heads.
