At long last, after much planning, discussion, learning from one another, and hard work, the second graders have reached the final stage of their sculpture project: the glazing. Having completed the modeling of the clay to resemble some important person with whom he/she shares a particular cultural celebration, each student has his/her sculpture fired. Subsequently, the students referred back to their original plan (colored drawing) in order to determine which colors of glaze to use to complete their sculptures. Now that all the glazing is complete, the projects go back into the kiln for a second and final firing. The students are very excited to see how their sculptures will turn out!
