Find out about fish and the different environments fish live in; then design a painted stuffed fish for a biodiversity exhibit.
Provide opportunities for students to study reefs and the types of fish that live in this environment.
Students work in teams of two or small groups to research the anatomical similarities and differences among fish species. Organize text and electronic resources for students to view during this research.
Once research is complete and well-organized, provide a large piece of paper for student groups to create an outline of a specific species of fish, showing anatomical features researched. Students can use Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to create this illustration.
Use Crayola Scissors to cut out the fish illustration. Students place the large cutout on top of a second sheet of paper, trace around it, and cut out the second fish.
Staple the two layers of fish together almost all the way around the edges, leaving a space unstapled at the bottom. Students use recycled newspaper to stuff their fish. This can be done by crumpling newspaper sheets into loose balls and pushing the balls gently into the opening. When the fish is slightly rounded, students staple the opening closed.
After covering their workspace with recycled newspaper, students use Crayola Washable Kid's Paints to design colorful patterns on one side of their fish. Allow paint to dry overnight.
Paint the opposite side of the fish. Allow time for paint to dry.
Use Crayola Washable Glitter Glue to add sparkling detains to artwork. Allow time to dry.
