I have done a lesson in clay with 7th graders based on mythology. I read to
them and then we discuss the myth of the Chimeara (spelling?) about a
monstor the is part lion, part dragon and part viper. They really seem to
like the tale and the discussion is really fun. Then they have to come up
with their own hybrid creature. Their creature does not have to me
"montrous" and I have seen some pretty cute bunny dogs and cat snakes!!
Sometimes we glaze, sometimes just paint the fired clay piece. In the clay
process, surface texture is emphasized.
