Mira had a french project. They had to build an aquarium and populate it with fish. Sounds easy. But there were some ground rules. The fish had to be chosen from a list that was given them. The list also included a dollar amount for each fish and their total amount "spent" could not exceed $300. They also had to make sure that the critters in their aquarium would live together in harmony. As in no one would eat anyone else for lunch. They could present their aquarium either as a drawing or a model. The funniest part of the information sheet (in my mind) was the bold type first sentence that said that the kids WERE NOT TO MAKE AND SET UP A REAL AQUARIUM CONTAINING REAL FISH ! Well, DUHH!
In any case, Mira attacked this project like anything art related that tweaks her interest and did a kick ass mini aquarium. Don't you think?
I like the snail's eye stalks. What's your favorite?
