1st grade- Caddo Animal Pottery

The 1st grade is learning about the Caddo Native Americans from Texas.  They are learning that the Caddo have a long history of being artists and are still making amazing artwork today.

We are learning that pottery is functional art, which means it can be used or it has a job.  The shape of a piece of pottery gives us clues about how it should be used.  A mug is shaped differently than a pitcher because they are used differently.

We are creating pottery that has a job and then decorating it with animal forms, like the Caddo.
