Hands kneading a ball of dough into a round shape.

To emphasize the efforts it took to source the clay and shape pre-Columbian artifacts, students are encouraged to participate in creating their own clay materials through a salt-dough clay recipe. It is a simple process of mixing salt, flour, and water together to create this clay-like material. The recipe takes nearly twenty minutes to form the clay, and it can be stored in a fridge for a couple of weeks.
