1st Grade Aboriginal X-ray Fish

1st graders are studying the life and art of the Australian Aboriginees. We looked at the country of Australia, the historical Aboriginee lifestyle, and the many types of paintings that were common for them.  We looked especially at the x-ray style painting that was used to paint animals and people often on the inside of cave walls. They would paint the outside of the animal and the inside at the same time like an x-ray. 

We traced our shoes for the shape of fish and then drew them in an x-ray style. We used Aboriginal types of colors to color the patterns and decorated the frame in an Aboriginal style tribal band.
