Fishbowl Fun!

The kids love clay and FISHBOWLS!  As you can see, some of these fishbowls have some serious fish.  Fun project for third grade!


Week 1:  The kids looked at Henri Matisse's Goldfish Bowl painting.  We talked a little about Matisse's life and work.  Also, we reviewed slip and scoring clay.  Then, the kids drew their plan for their fishbowl.

Week 2-I had pre-cut 2 patterns for the fish bowls.  I had pre-sliced slabs of clay.  The kids looked at their drawings from the previous week.  They designed their fishbowls with the clay.  They used straws, plastic forks, plastic knives, and skewers to build their fishbowls.

Week 3-I had let the clay dry and fired the fishbowls.  They painted the fishbowls with acrylic paint. 

From Pink Floyd, "Wish You Were Here," you will find the line "We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl."
I thought that song was quite fitting for this particular post.
