Our schedule has been a mess this week with picture day, the end of the 9 weeks, and Open House tomorrow. I decided to spend the rest of this week creating Dr. Seuss inspired art works.
I modified a lesson that I had previously pinned from Patty at Deep Space Sparkle.
My kinders and 1st grade did this lesson today one class period.
It was super fun and successful!
I showed a video to introduce the book.
We then drew a forward facing fish or side fish on construction paper with black China markers.
The student's colored the details with oil pastels and then cut them out.
The background was painted with Metallic Paint Sticks.
They dry super quick so that you can glue it on right away.
