Grab your gills and fluff your fins to make art based on science! Research a fish, gather photos, and model a fun, realistic wildlife replica.
Invite students, working in teams of 2, to investigate a fish or other water creature that interests them. Organize resources for students to view during this investigation. Encourage students to gather drawings and photographs of their selected fish or water creature in preparation for sculpting a realistic replica.
Students use Model Magic® as a base for the fish body, such as an elongated rectangle or oval. Bend it into any position you want!
What are the biggest body parts needed? A head, fins, and tail? Students use the most realistic colors—or be imaginative! Smooth out the surface with fingers or by gently rolling a marker over it.
Now add layers. Roll the modeling compound into different-sized coils for lines. Make small balls and gently press them on for circles. Look carefully at the pictures so as to add interest and realism to the sculpture.
Complete the life-like look with Crayola Glitter Glue details. Build up textured scales! Model Magic® dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days.
Teams create a habitat for their creature to show its beneath-the-water home.
Teams present their organism, its habitat and significant research to classmates.
