Sixth grade students have been learning about the terracotta army of soldiers that was unearthed in 1974 in China. Students have been able to read and write about this discovery from ancient China. Today, students created their own terracotta soldiers out of clay! They are excited to add paint to them next week. The original terracotta soldiers were painted in beautiful colors but the paint flaked off as soon as it was exposed to air - hopefully our soldiers won't meet the same fate!
