If you have enough clay, I'd let the 3-5 grades do one class with clay
and one painting the clay projects. Where else are they going to get
it? Parents don't even allow playdough in a lot of homes. I'd also let
them paint at least one paper painting-big if possible. They don't get
much of a chance to do that other than in art class as well. Don't do
elements and principles as a separate lesson with the little ones. Talk
to them about it throughout your lessons.
And if I don't have clay? LOL!
