Shoe Fish

Shoe Fish lesson plan for kids

Summary:

Students will use the outline of their shoe as the basic shape for a fish.

What You Need:

  • Shoes
  • Pencil
  • 9×12 paper (or bigger if you want to make an aquarium)
  • Crayons or Markers

What You Do:

  1. Have students take off one of their shoes and trace the bottom of it onto paper.
  2. Then, using the shoe outline as the fish outline, have students create fins, gills, eyes, mouth, and scales on their fish.
  3. When the drawing is complete have students color the fish with markers.
    • *Note: You can have them cut out their fish and glue them on a huge piece of paper, and then have them draw a background. This looks like the fish are swimming in an aquarium.

The kids really get a kick out of taking their shoes off in class, and using them to make art!
