Recycled Pop Bottle Fish

4th Graders are making a sculpture by using an existing object - a pop bottle!  They cut off the bottom and then stapled it flat.  Then they drew the outline for the fins and tail and cut those out.  After that, students drew their design plan on the fish with permanent marker.  Finally, they had fun painting with acrylic paint - the more colors the better!  These fish look great as outdoor decorations or as a sun-catcher in front of a window.
