Wild Animals on Skeletons made with Silk Clay


Children's natural and spatial intelligence is enhanced by this creative project when combining biology and modelling. First, the children learn about different animals and how plant life and animal life are connected (nature-wise). The children then model the different animals from Silk Clay, which enhances their spatial intelligence (image-wise).
