Get wired for beaded fish

Get wired for beaded fish

Alexander Calder's wire "Fish" (1944) inspired these 2nd graders to construct their own wire fish sculpture using OLD telephone wire, pipe cleaners and beads. I got the wire from my art teacher partner (now retired) and she got it about 15years before that!

For storage students put their work into a quart size Ziplock bag, beads and all. To keep the bags from puffing up show kids how to leave a slight opening when sealing the bag.
