Clay Lesson Plan Books

Clay Projects - Beginner's Clay Projects - Elementary Clay Projects

Advanced Clay Projects - More Advanced Clay Projects - Challenging Clay Projects

Time saving books that offer clay lesson plans which have everything a teacher, new or experienced, needs to present a successful lesson. The books are in a format that is easy to follow in a step by step layout.  Each book is great during your observations with a completed lesson plan from start to finish that you can present to your principal or observer.  Projects are open ended to allow for creativity and high level thinking skills. 

Each book is spiral bound for easy handling.  Some lesson plans have diagrams that make the step-by-step instructions very easy to follow and colored pictures of final projects that may help you, the teacher, have an idea of what the projects can look like finished.  Naturally, I hope you make it your own.  

I have made all of these projects in order to write clear and accurate step-by-step lesson plans.  The motivational techniques have worked in my classroom for years and I feel they will work for you to.  I hope you find these books of clay lesson plans helpful in your daily teaching
