Center Focus

Hand Sculpture

  1. You will need modeling clay for this activity.
  2. Have your students make a clay model of their own hand.
  3. They should really pay attention to detail, adding lines, marks, fingernails, etc. You may want to show samples of statues and carvings.
  4. Have them carve their name into the wrist of their clay hand.
