Purpose of activity: To learn about the luminescence of deep sea fish as well as to enjoy doing an art project.
Description of activity: A pattern is printed onto black paper. Students use colored pencils or crayons to color fish, then add glow-in-the-dark highlights on the areas that really do glow.
Target age group: Ages 8-12
Time needed: 15-30 minutes, depending upon how fast the students color
Materials needed: Copies on black paper, colored pencils or crayons (I always recommend Berol Prismacolor pencils, especially for a project like this where you are coloring light onto black), glow-in-the-dark paint
