Clay Tiles

My sweet second graders are really excited to finally take their clay tiles home.  This project was part of our Middle Eastern culture study – we looked at images of the beautiful tiles found in shrines in Iran and learned about radial symmetry before creating our own tiles.

  1. You bet! They are even nicer in person. The gold acrylic paint added after glazing them really made the tiles “pop”.
