3D Jellyfish Creations

 

A 3D jellyfish replica makes for a fun project!  Here are some of the jellyfish creations my students have come up with.

Each year, I usually have my students make a 3D jellyfish as a project. Of course, it must be accurate in anatomy, and must include the bell, tentacles, oral arms, mouth and gastrovascular cavity (stomach).

The students enjoy coming up with a way to represent this beautiful creature, and the challenge of showing their correct anatomical parts ties it together.  It’s fun to see what students come up with, and here are some of their creations:

Try looking around your house for things that you can use too: bowls, ribbon, or even recycle a plastic bottle to use the bottom as the bell.

Inspired to do a craft for decoration or with a young one?  Pinterest has some great ideas for jellyfish crafts: http://www.pinterest.com/explore/jellyfish-crafts/

Have fun!
