Covering the board took a little work. First, my students put together a giant ocean scenery puzzle full of fish-from Melissa and Doug. (I am not an affiliate for them-in fact, I got mine for $3.99 at our local Goodwill!) I covered the puzzle with a sealer and rested it on the bulletin board by resting it on plastic stick pins and surrounding the puzzle with them.
Future additions included two art projects. One of them they did at home. The other they did at school. Tomorrow I will share the cool art project my students did to make really fun fish for the board outside of the puzzle!
