Home Learning: Rocks #12

Since we were comparing sand and clay before, we had to also create something made out of clay. see sand sculptures.
 First, the kids learned how to roll clay into a small ball.  

We placed a straw inside the ball. We used a pencil for decorating.  We left our balls out to dry for a few days. 

Meanwhile, and just for plain fun, the kids play with this play-doh gravel set.  I found it on a clearance isle for just a few $5.  It fits perfectly to see how gravel is made in a little hand scale.
