I originally saw this idea on Pinterest. Here is the original link:
I really loved this clever art project & wanted to try it but when I clicked on the link the instructions weren’t in English. By looking at the pictures & playing around with some paper, I think I worked out the fold correctly.
1. Start off with a piece of drawing paper. I used an A4 sized piece but if you had more time, students could make A3 sized pictures.
4. Draw the fish in pencil. Draw in a small smile, close to & touching the fold line. Add spots, scales or lines to decorate. It’s very important to draw all the fish detail in first so that when it’s folded down all the lines join up!
Hope you enjoy this art project as much as I did! I have tried this activity with Years 1-5 and they have all enjoyed it. The year 1s and 2s needed more direct instruction but were able to do all of the folding and drawing themselves.
