Time to learn all about FISH! This pack contains posters (color and black & white) and interactive notebook pages (these can be used in a mini-book as well), as well as a fish report format and a live fish lab.
Students will learn:
What is a fish?
Part of a Fish
Three Classes of Fish
Unusual Fact about Fish
Research any Type of Fish for Report
We use this pack as we study the different Animal Classifications. We spend a week on each classification.
- scissors - glue sticks - crayons/markers
- live fish (feeder fish work well) – straws
- food coloring - computers (for research)
- 12 x 18 colored construction paper
I use the posters to make a bulletin board display of information. I also copy the information posters about each of the three classes of fish for each table to share. Around these posters we hang the students’ fish reports.
