We will be making clay maps of California in next week. We have been studying California geography, and this is a fun project that turns out a beautiful relief map of California made by each student.
It is so helpful to have one parent at each table in the room for this project, which means we need 5 volunteers. We will be using Crayola Air Dry Clay. One parent can volunteer to prepare pieces of cardboard that the maps will be adhered to. These I will need by September 14th. These pieces need to be cut to a 10’ x 12’ size. One side of the cardboard should be blank so when the white paper is glued to it, you can’t see any writing through it. I usually find Trader Joes to be a good place to get cardboard from boxes they are throwing away. The important thing is that the cardboard is sturdy enough to hold the salt and flour map, so please no real thin cardboard.
If you can help in any of these areas, please email me as soon as you can. I am planning on making the maps in class on September 16th, beginning at 1:10. Parent helpers can arrive at 12:45.
Room parents, Julie or Mandy, will send you a confirmation of your choices below. Thanks!
