My nine-year-old boy texted me to buy 1/8 illustration board and a box of modeling clay (of any color). He plans to do his science project all by himself on a weekend — a cardiac muscle made of clay.
I provided him with his needs and let him do his project for I myself do not have any idea on how to do it.
1. Second son googled a cardiac muscle image. He told me he wants to make his cardiac model as accurate as the real one.
2. I checked on him and saw him rolling together a few clay with his hands. I saw a number of tube-line structures and worm-like formations.
3. He smashed some of his molded clay together until they stick.
4. He asked me if he could use the oven. I gently placed his modeling clay on the cookie plate and into the oven until it became hard.
5. I asked him to buy a bottle of rugby to bond the clay and illustration board together.
6. We covered his project with a plastic cover to protect it from just anything.
