♣ Pre-made fishbowl worksheet, “Where Do My Fish Live?”
♣ 39 pre-cut yellow fish, 39 pre-cut blue fish, 39 pre-cut green fish
♣ Glue sticks
Procedure: Small Groups
1. Ask students if they would like to play a color game that they can bring home and show their parents. Ask students to sit at a table with a disposable table cloth to prevent mess with glue.
2. Give the student a worksheet and explain that there is a yellow, blue, and green fish bowl. Tell the students that each fish has a home and we have to find where it lives.
3. Guide students through the first two fish. Show a yellow fish and say, “This is a yellow fish. Do you think he lives in the yellow or blue fish bowl?” When the student guesses correctly, allow them to glue the fish to the bowl. If the student cannot use the glue properly, help them.
4. Allow students to determine the color of the fish and the color of the bowl for the remainder of the activity. Ask, “What color fish is this? Where does he live?” If the student guesses incorrectly, ask, “If this is a blue fish, does he live in the green or blue bowl?”
5. Allow students to glue fish until the blue bowl has three fish, yellow bowl has two fish, and green bowl has one fish.
6. Point to the green bowl and ask, “How many green fish are in the green bowl?”
7. Without pointing, ask, “How many yellow fish are in the yellow bowl? How many blue fish are in the blue bowl?”
8. Ask, “Why do you think there are more blue fish than yellow or green fish?” If the student cannot answer this question, ask, “What is the color of the week?”
