About this unit:

There’s a lot going on in this unit! You will fire up your imagination and invent a never-before-seen creature (learning how artists sometimes overcome creative roadblocks by loosening up by playing drawing games); you will learn how to create a musical instrument (whistle or rattle) out of clay; and you will learn clay sculpting techniques to bring your creature to life!
