Underwater Paper Sculptures

1st and 2nd graders learned about the difference between 2d and 3d art. We learned that you can make sculptures from paper as well. We discussed how to create symmetry when cutting on the folder side of a piece of paper. Students made their water by drawing wavy lines on a folded piece of cardstock and then cutting. We read the story THE POUT POUT FISH. The story was a great addition to the lesson because the Pout Pout fish met many different types of sea creatures throughout the story. Students then had to draw and cut out 6 sea creatures from our scrap paper box and then add details using marker and glue it on the water.  Lastly they made a sail boat from construction paper and a craft stick to float on the surface of the water. They turned out awesome!
