As mentor you must, or ocassionally inspire your students with new ideas. You will be able to help and motivate them in creating their own idea and design. http://www.garieinternational.com.sg/clay/aquabox.htm      Options  Reply Delete Edit

That is really clever. The kids all made beautiful and realistic looking fish. :) I love admiring kids artwork. I always take the time to look at it when they have displays at the mall or the library.      Options  Reply

That is so great! I know my grandsons and neices just love playing with PC and have been pleasantly surprised by some of their results. The children's projects are so cute and what great inspiration! :-)

Hi,

Thanks, not all the kids are able to concentrate on their homeworks or art projects, creating an interesting subject for boys and girls is very important it will help them to stay focus in their project. The interesting subject will help them to craft their skills and make better crafts.

Regards,
Garie

Hello again,

We must inspire our students or our children to create or play with anything, be it music, drawing or clay, t he fun of anything will help them to excel, even the simplest art works can be fun and interesting to them.

Thank you,

Regards,
Garie

Hi,

Thanks Rickie, for your kind remarks. Teaching kid to built different parts and fix them together into a complete project, is an excellent way for students to expand their idea in PC creation. Teaching them about the PC material, that you can bake them many times as long as the temperature is set correctly. That you can also superglue them and still able to bake in the oven. Student must understand the characteristic of the clay medium that they are using.

Regards,
Garie

Hi Susan,

Thank You, about the use of magnets, there are two different age group in the Magnetic Picture Box Aquarium project, kids that are about 6 years old and kids that are about 10 years old. The younger age will create 2D fishes and the older or experience student will create 3D fishes. To make the MPBA more interesting the magnets will interact with another magnet concealed below the box. Magnets will always position the two dimentional clay fish to the front position. By pulling the strings there is an interaction between both magnets, making a flipping movement with the fish. As for the three diamentional fish, the tiny magnets is concealed in the dolphin mouth. You need to position another magnet below the dolphin's mouth, the dolphin will flip as it comes into contact with the other magnet, by regulating the nylon string. I hope this will answer your question about the magnets.

Regards,
Garie

Hi Pris,
