Paper Sculpture Fish by Grade 1
We read Hooray For Fish by Lucy Cousins for inspiration for this project. First graders learned about the many types of materials a sculpture can be made of. They painted their fish sculptures with warm and cool colors and designs.
My pin! This is a Japanese Rainbow fish. The kids learn a new type of fish and they are nly located in certain area. so they are not commonly saw. There was actually a book called rainbow fish.

And then on the tail you tape some different colord streamers and you can hang it up!
