Sgraffito is a technique either of wall decor,

produced by applying layers of plaster tinted
in contrasting colors to a moistened surface, or
in ceramics
comes from the Italian word: graffiare
also from the greek word graffito to write:

Your reflection about the lesson, including evidence(s) of student learning and engagement, as well as ideas for improvement
for next time. (Write this after teaching the lesson, if you had a chance to teach it. If you did not teach this lesson, focus on the
process of preparing the lesson.)
I wanted the students to know where the root of sgraffito was and what they were doing. I wasnt able to teach this lesson, as it
wasnt a part of the teachers unit plan. However, it was really hard researching where sgraffito originated. My teacher just told me
that its been around for a long time, but I couldnt find any scholarly articles on sgraffito. However, images were easy to find, thats
why I made the lesson fitting to the students to find images and not information about sgraffito.
