I am going to make a clay animal about my dad. I chose to do him because I am really close to him and I thought it would be fun to figure out an animal like him. He is nice, smart, and when he was younger he ran in races. In theses races, instead of sprinting for parts of it, he would run at a slow and steady pace. This reminded me of the tortoise in the book the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady wins the race.
I will put the turtle on a soccer field with a soccer ball under one leg. I chose a soccer field because my dad likes playing soccer, coaching sometimes, and managing my teams.
