Stuffed Fish

Second grade students worked on this three-dimensional drawing project.  They began by learning about the different parts of a fish including fins and scales and how to draw them.  Then they began the process of creating two fish that were a mirror image of each other, one for each side of their finished three-dimensional project.  This was the most difficult part of the project so we created the matching fish with a crayon transfer technique.  Students drew one fish, then folded their paper and rubbed on the back so that the crayon would transfer to create another fish.  The fish were then colored with a variety of different crayon colors.

Students cut out their fish and, after a lesson on fractions, they stapled 3/4 of the way around the edge.  Newspaper was stuffed inside and the hole was stapled closed.  The finishing touch was a blue watercolor wash to give the impression of water on top of the fish.


 The assessment students filled out for this project was similar to the one linked to the right, but with fish faces instead of people faces.  The space at the bottom of the assessment was provided as an area for students to write a sentence describing their project using adjectives from the A to Z Art Wall.
