Under the Sea

Montessori students in grades 1-3 made these seascapes. We began by drawing a fish and creating original patterns within the body. Students learned that a pattern is created when a line or a shape is repeated. These were then painted with watercolors. The ocean was painted using different values of blue- students learned that value is the lightness or darkness of a color and created their own values by mixing. On the final day, students stamped some smaller fish using their thumbs and cut out some seaweed to complete the seascape.
