Humourous Head Planter Spike: Ceramics Lesson

What a great activity. Kids create humorous ceramic character (heads) spikes to enliven a planter. Modern art is full of expressive and exaggerated forms and your class gets to create them out of clay. This would be a lovely activity to accompany a lesson on tall tales, modern art, characterization, or humorous expression. It will also help kids learn to relax and use art as a mode of expression, not just as realistic representation.

Lesson Planet has taken the stress away of trying to come up with an interesting lesson that hooks the students. This is important for a rookie teacher.
