Kindergarten and 1st grade have been learning about texture for the past few weeks. This week we talked about petting zoos, and how different animals feel. Students rolled slabs out of Playdough, or didn't, then cut out the shape of an animal, and finished by adding patterns with the clay tools to create texture.
Previously, students have drawn line patterns to create texture, done texture rubbings, and even used the texture plates with the Playdough. Playdough has been a big hit.
Here are some more pictures.
