Bas Relief Under the Sea

Second graders used colored tissue, watery glue, liquid water color paint and salt to create an under water world. The salt added and interesting salt water texture.

The following week they used Model Magic clay to create creatures of the sea. They had blue, red, yellow and white and used their knowledge of mixing to create original colors. Lots of creative thinking produced a wonderful result.
