-paint two paper plates
-staple the plates together and cut out a mouth
-use the mouth you cut out to make fins
If I did it again, I think I would staple the plates before we painted. You would have to paint one side and then let it dry before doing the other, but I still think it might make the construction process easier. Not sure though.
I think I'll read one of my favorites, The Pout Pout Fish, by Deborah Diesen, on Valentine's Day to make the *fish-love* connection.
How do you collect valentines in your classroom?
