We are required to come up with a water themed art project for our kids in third grade for the annual art show. This is in the vain of project based learning. Any helpful suggestions?

Could the children choose a water ecosystem, research and then create an artistic representation of it?

As an example: if as a class they were to choose the Great Barrier Reef they might each research a different aspect of the reef (maybe some fish, a sea snake, dolphin, coral, tourism, pollution) and then decide whether this is to be a 2 or 3D representation and each create "their research topic", keeping in mind that they will all be combined into one display of The Great Barrier Reef. You could squeeze some integrated learning in there too - ecosystems, pollution, tourism etc.

Otherwise the only min-tip I have is to draw in pencil or crayon, wash over with bluey-green watercolour paint (using lots more water than you think you'll need) and then sprink salt over the paint, cover with plastic kitchen wrap and let it dry (lying flat). When you pull off the plastic wrap and brush off the salt.... the paint looks like water over your drawing. It looks FANTASTIC and kids love doing it.
