Blacklight Coral Reef Lesson





Just as Newsweek publishes a story on the disappearing reef, my students endeavor to paint in the blacklight, focusing on coral reefs.the project starts with coloring pages of coral reefs as reference, so students can see the shapes of coral, tropical fish, etc.  Here are a few of the pages they used.





Next, students used fluorescent tempera paints to fill in the animals, coral and sand.  Regular black and blue tempera was used as outlining and water.
