About this Learning Experience

This Learning Experience will teach you about how different materials are used to express culture and beliefs. This Learning Experience is suitable for secondary school students, year 1-3. Note: This Learning Experience will require you to prepare no-bake and baked clay at home. You will need to bring the clays to the point of interest to carry out an experiment. Materials: 1. 1 cup of flour (140g) 2. 105g of salt 3. 1 cup of water (225 ml) 4. 2-4 tablespoon of cooking oil 5. Oven Method 1 (For the No-bake Clay): 1. Add the flour and salt into a medium sized bowl. 2. Pour the water into the salt and flour and mix. 3. Stir the mixture until everything is combined into a dough like mixture. 4. Add about 2-4 tablespoon of oil into the mixture. This is to soften the clay and prevent it from becoming crumbly. 5. Using your hands, press and knead the mixture until it turns into a dough. Method 2 (For baking) : 1. Preheat the oven to 129 degree celsius. 2. Now, place the dough on a tray and put it into the oven for 15- 20 minutes. 3. Upon removing it from the oven, let it cool for 20-30 minutes. Please refer to the website link below for a better understanding about clay-making http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Clay
