We read "I'm the best artist in the Ocean" by Kevin Sherry ( I believe). We started out with a tracer of a fish bowl.
We then drew the main character of the Story, a Squid with a mustache. Then added all different types of crabs and fish, etc. We traced all pencil lines with black Sharpie marker. Then color all fish/objects with crayons. Go over the water with blue tempura water cakes.
Allow to dry. Then we cut them out and looked at them all together, a mini-class critique.
This was a 1-2 day project. The class really enjoyed the story and the slideshow, I showed, off fish and underwater images.
Take a look! They look like a fishbowl that I always dreamed of!
