Biodiversity of marine organisms is enormous. Looking at even just the fish, we can observe the wide variety of body shapes they can have.

In the art game, we will try to replicate selected species.

Goal: Introducing children to the anatomy of fish.

Time: 20 minutes


    • modeling paste (self-hardening clay or plasticine)
    • pumpkin seeds
    • peppercorns
    • mat
    • sculpting tools (optionally)

The course of the task

From a piece of clay, we shape the desired form. In the body section, we insert pumpkin seeds at a slight angle to mimic scales. In the front part, we stick a small peppercorn as an eye. If we have sculpting tools, we can make appropriate cuts for the fins.
