1st grade Woven Fish

This lesson was adapted from Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists. It's a very fun, unconventional way to incorporate weaving and the kids really love designing the fish. We used sharpies and construction paper crayons as well as colored construction paper. I kept things simple and only cut black and white paper strips for the weaving portion. The bodies of the fish were drawn, colored and cut out using 9x12 construction paper on day one. While the kids were away, I cut the slits by gently folding the fish in half. On the second day of production, students added at least 5 paper strips for the weaving and then added tails and fins cut from construction paper. Blub, blub.....
