Please Don't Eat the Artwork

ART WITH MS K

Hooray for Fish!

Leave a comment

My 2nd graders finished their big project last week and since winter holiday starts next week I didn’t want to start anything new. I came up with this great one day lesson that was perfect for students right before the break! We started the lesson by reading the book Hooray for Fish! Students observed and noticed the bold, patterned, illustrations and identified the different shapes the illustrator used to make fish.

Then students drew a fish onto 9×12 paper and used a sharpie to trace it.

They used water color paint to color their fish.

The last step was to cut out the fish and place it in the “aquarium” to create a collaborative class creation!

This project is great because it can be done with many different levels with more or less components to make it more or less challenging. I can’t wait to hang up our aquarium!
