What You'll Do:

Grab a ball of clay and tune in for a mooshy good time with clay creature expert, Dave English! Clay Creature Capers takes your students on an imaginative hands-on adventure making clay creatures at home and creating our own fun stories! Clay Creature Capers offers an opportunity for creative self expression and inventiveness with endless opportunities for curriculum tie-ins. Clay pizzas can teach kids about fractions, clay animals teach a mix of biology and empathy, and stories about their clay creatures reinforce new vocabulary and sentence structure. Or sometimes it’s just about having fun! Clay Creature Capers can be molded to work for any age or ability.
