  • July 11, 2019

Gyotaku video. Link opens in new window.

Hello! Summer is is full swing! The weather is warm (or hot perhaps). Here is a fun and simple activity for your consideration next year. Any suggestions or things you would like to share please let us know.

Gyotaku, or ‘fish – stone impression’ is a traditional Japanese art of printing fish. It was used in the mid 1800’s for fishermen to record their catches. This is a fun activity to get your students excited about raising fish in their classroom. You can use your own store bought fish or find rubber stamps online like the ones we use.
