Project Instructions

  1. Pre-work: Teachers, make different fish shapes from foam that students can trace.
  2. Have students trace a cut out of the desired fish with a pencil onto the foam and cut out. Using a pencil, write an acrostic poem on the foam fish shape.
  3. Trace over the poem with markers or glitter glue, making the first letter of each line stand out from the rest.
  4. Glue on acrylic jewels, wiggle eyes and other decorations to make the creature come to life!

Craft Notes

Adult supervision is required at all times.


After a unit of study on the oceans and the animals that live there, have students choose three animals that they are especially interested in. Have students write acrostic poems about each one on their very own fish. Have the class work as a group to draw an underwater mural so that they can display their poems on the mural.
