5y clay presidents

5P Clay presidents

After researching and writing a paper on different American presidents in social studies class, fifth graders sculpted their president out of clay. We used reference photos to help us sculpt details like hair, clothes appropriate to when the president lived and facial features. We looked at the artwork of Shepard Fairey, the controversial street artist who created Obama' "hope" poster for the 2008 election.
