Art Project Girl, I finally got it. These fish drawings are what my 5th graders are doing this week. We have maps testing so everyone is coming in a different order. This project is quick and easy but still reviews line and pattern for the kids. To finish them they will add some life advice and color only one fish.
This is one of our Awful Alphabet Creatures. We read the book The Absolutely Awful Alphabet by Mordicai Gerstein. The students then were assigned a letter to turn into a creature. We spent a lot of time discussing craftsmanship and how to color the image completely and nicely. I was so happy to see how creative they could be on their first project. It really has me happy to see what this year will bring.
It is so nice to have the year up and going. Hope everyone else is off to a great start to their school year.
