The 4th graders learned about Mancala through a powerpoint. They were able to view many different mancala boards from different cultures. After we discussed the game of Mancala the students were able to use templates to design their own mancala board out of clay. After their boards were complete they were able to use many different tools to create pattern and texture on their board. Finally the students were able to glaze their board with the color of their choice.
