Hand in progress day 2

Sometimes I have trouble getting much done because of students having difficulty. Although I generally use my own project to demonstrate problems, sometimes it doesn't help. I didn't get anything added today.

Students struggle a great deal with trying to look at an object and work with the clay to make it look the same. I have to remind them several times to really LOOK at their hands. I think adding the thumb is always the hardest part of this assignment. They have a tendency to attach it much too high on the side of the hand rather than down by the wrist.
