Then I asked the following questions to encourage conversation and observation:
How many fish are there?
What color are they?
Where do you think they are?
Describe the background.
We then tore and ripped different organic shapes from orange construction paper. We cut (with help) a glowing sun. Then we practiced our gluing of the shapes, eyes and bubbles. Lastly we spread out a whole bunch of glue on the bottom of the fish tank and poured colored sand making the tank sparkly and adding texture.
And there you have it a fish bowl masterpiece to enjoy with your very own one of a kind fish...... and none of the messy upkeep.
