This hands on art lesson will show students how to use movement in art by creating jellyfish tentacles by blowing paint through a straw. Included is a one day lesson plan, in progress photo, many student samples and 2 teacher examples to review or share. I've also included a DIY guide to making liquid watercolors to recycle your old paint. Suggestions are made to extend the lesson to a second class.
The lesson plan includes a supply list, nat'l art standards, anticipatory set, objectives and step by step procedures.
This lesson could be tied into science lessons including a unit on ocean life or the concept of gravity.
