This week we made Ancient Greek pots out of clay. First we rolled the clay into a smooth ball. Then we squeezed the clay, pulling and pinching the clay with our fingers. We used our thumbs to push down the clay and made a hole in the middle of the ball. We pinched the side of the top of the pot to make a lip around the edge. Then we rolled one snake out of another small piece of clay and used water to stick the snake to the bottom of the pot. We then made two handles for the pot. We were careful to make sure they were stuck on really well. Next week we are going to paint our Ancient Greek pots. It was fun making the clay pots.
