Dear students, teachers, and parents,
As you probably already know, Mrs. Fischer’s grade 4 class has been using the developments in Dubai as an inquiry subject. Under the guidance of Mrs. Bacon, we recreated an underwater scene.
|The way we did this was take a group of canvases, split up into groups of three or four and draw on the canvas with oil pastels.|
|We then painted over the oil pastel, and created different textures using various small objects like ribbon, stuffing and tin foil.|
|In addition to the textures, each student created a tropical fish that was placed on the canvases. Using a glue and water mixture we 'painted' tissue paper onto a tin-foiled covered fish.4||The canvases were then draped over a table in order to mimic the appearance of a room inside the Hydropolis, the underwater hotel they are building in Dubai.|
We named our hotel the 'Glendropolis', and unlike the Hydropolis, it will not cost you $6800.00 per night to stay there. We are taking turns silent reading in our hotel.
