Clay in the Classroom: Helping Children Develop Cognitive and Affective Skills for Learning.

Clay in the Classroom

The authors of this book contend that clay, when used in appropriate and well-planned activities, will help young children develop cognitive as well as effective skills. They assert that educators searching for ways to balance technology with a developmentally appropriate curriculum can do well using this time-honored, versatile and inexpensive medium. This book can serve as a supplemental text in early education workshops and classes, and as a valuable resource for preschool practitioners, curriculum directors and art teachers at all levels of instruction.
