Did you see Susan Paradis' printable fish the other day? What a fantastic idea for learning scales! I took it a step farther and created a fishbowl for my students' fish to live in while they learn. I had so much fun creating this!
|Each child has a major and a minor fish. When they learn a certain scale, I will write the letter name of the scale in one of the 'scales.'|
|The bottom of the fishbowl. I spread some glue, dusted it with sand, and stuck some little jewels on the sand. The seaweed I cut from green foam, and arranged to look 3-D.|
|Found this cute felt rick-rack to use for the water level|
|The perfect spot for our fishbowl. I drew a fishbowl shape on white posterboard, then traced the bowl on blue posterboard and stuck it to the white, leaving a water level at the top.|
|The sign above|
|The finished bowl. Total cost of materials (that I didn't already have on hand): Only $3 |
