Chinese scrolls, 1st grade: students use water and tissue paper to create background (when dry the tissue paper comes off leaving a wonderful effect). Then brushed chalk from a curved piece of paper onto the background. Then added a cut out fish print they had made with a rubber fish. Finally printed their name in Chinese from foam board onto the black strips to complete!
