PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What does your future hold? Students will run a controlled experiment to find out if heat or moisture causes the Fortune Teller Fish to curl in their palm. .

Provided in this bundle are two pages of teacher instructions including where to purchase the fish on-line, a two page student lab sheet and an explanation as to what actually causes the fish to curl.

Incorporate differentiation in your classroom by allowing students to choose which variable to test. You can use this activity anytime during the year that you would like to throw in some fun while reviewing the scientific process and variables. If you are teaching botany, the reason that the fish curls is analogous to how auxin in plants causes bending towards sunlight.

In the end, each student will make a claim and support it with evidence collected from their observations. If their fish survives, each student will also leave your class with a fun souvenir.
