A Fish Out of Water is about a goldfish that is overfed and grows to unusual sizes. At one point in the book the fish grows so large that he will only fit in the bathtub! After reading this tale, first grade students drew their own bathtubs. Once the tubs were drawn students explored sculpture and model magic and sculpted their own fish. Students mixed up their own orange color with tempera cakes, decorated their fish with textures, and applied gloss to their sculptures. The tub drawings were then transformed into 3d forms and the fish were placed inside!
