Choose a favorite one-digit number.
Knead Crayola® Model Magic, and roll it into a 3/4-inch (2 cm) coil. Shape the coil into the desired numeral.
Create the same number of dents, holes, ridges, or impressions as the numeral represents. These are some possible methods for making them deep or high enough to feel: Carve or press with plastic knives, wooden spoons, and other found objects. To make contrasting inlays, poke a hole with a pencil eraser, then drop a small Model Magic ball into the hole and press firmly. Make narrow, crosswise dents by pressing the blunt side of a plastic knife into the coil. Add contrasting strips of color by laying small coils of another color into the dents. Press firmly. Pinch Model Magic up to make ridges and bumps. Fill with small coils of another color, and pinch to hold in place.
Students create and share valuable pictures with coin rubbings.
