[teacherartexchange] which clay to order?

Hi all,

I finally got to use clay with my students this year (8th grade) and quickly ran out of it. I'll be teaching one class of ceramics next year to high schoolers and was wondering which clays you recommend.

I three storage bins for reclaiming clay so I would like to get 2 or 3 different kinds. We'll be doing both handbuilding and some beginner wheel throwing.

I used AMACO STONEWARE CLAY/NO58 and BLICK WHT TALC FREE but one is primarily a high fire and one low fire. I'd like to do some marbling of different colors. Anyone have any recommendations or other advice?
