First grade's last project was this fun jellyfish project! I knew that I would be away for the end of this project, so I thought of something that a substitute could help with. Students began by painting the paper with blue, purple, and magenta paint. Then, when the paint dried, students used construction paper crayons to draw jellyfish, bubbles, and other fun sea creatures! They loved using the bright colors.
