First Graders used oil pastel and transparent watercolor paint to create fish in their environment. Warm colors in the fish and cool colors in the ocean helped the fish to stand out. Grahm included fins, rays, teeth and texture to depict this small ocean hunter prowling his watery world.

My second graders do an “intro to slab construction” clay project. For the last ten thousand years or so it’s been a spoon holder in the shape of a gingerbread person. I got a little tired of those, so this is the first year of “Fish Dishes” instead! I think they’re pretty great, too.
We rolled slabs, cut a free-form fish (no templates… yes, Mrs. A works without a net.) added texture and details like gill cover, lateral line and rays. Then we turned them over on bowls for a slightly concave shape and added little feet to the bottoms for a little elevation. I’m pretty impressed – I think they’re “keepers”!
