Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Materials
You will need glue that dries clear, pliers, and bottle cap(s). Tape is not necessary, I just think it makes things easier.
Step 2: Make the Jellyfish Body
Use the pliers to flatten the edge of the bottle cap. This will be the jellyfish body!
Step 3: Make the Jellyfish Tentacles
Use the glue to form a tentacle on a smooth surface or a piece of tape. I made the tentacles about 1 inch long.
Step 4: Let the Glue Dry
Leave the tentacles to dry until they start to look clear around the edges.
Step 5: Let the Glue Dry More
When the edges of the tentacles are clear, you can peel them off. Place the tentacles upside down so the other side can dry. When the tentacles are completely dry they will look clear.
Step 6: Attach the Tentacles to the Body
You can use tape or glue to attach the tentacles to the body.
Step 7: Decorate
You can glue the jellyfish to something
You can attach it to a string and hang it somewhere (that's what I did)
You can put it in a jar full of water and pretend you have a pet jellyfish
You can be creative and do something that I haven't thought of
