Preschool Lesson Plan: Fish
Students explore biology by reading children's books in class. In this fish identification lesson, students read the book The Rainbow Fish and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Students identify the shapes of different fish and utilize math skills by completing a fish counting activity.
In this fish anatomy worksheet, students color and label the different parts of the fish. They complete 14 definitions using information from their textbook.
Fish and Flowers
Students read and discuss a research article that explains the unlikely link between increased fish populations and increased plant pollination. They answer reading guide questions to discover this ecological relationship.
Go Fish For Blends and Digraphs
Youngsters practice using blends and digraphs. In this early reading lesson, students play a game of "Go Fish" using words that contain a blend or digraph. This allows them to practice recognizing the word and using it in a sentence.
Motion Math: Hungry Fish Pro
There seems to be something that links young students, math, and fish. This isn't the only app to put those three things together, but this one does it in a very cute, intuitive way that reinforces basic arithmetic skills.
Sorting Fish By Pattern
Go fish! Preschoolers and kindergartners work on matching and patterns. This resource prompts little learners to match certain fish to the correct fisherman. They then count the types of fish and write the number in spaces provided. Color the picture for extra fun.
Fish Fashion 101
Students explore fish anatomy. In this fish anatomy and adaptation lesson, students define and identify the location of fish body parts. Students add these parts of a fish's anatomy to a life-sized fish costume worn by a student. Instructions for making a fish costume and a detailed teacher script is provided.
Where Oh Where Have All the Fish Gone? Oh Where Oh Where Can They Be?
Students participate in an activity in which plain and peanut M&M's are used to represent a community of fish. They role-play different scenarios that depict fishing practices by eating or discarding certain M&M's.
Mystery Fish Poetry Activity
Students research fish and fish adaptations. They conduct research on two fish, compare/contrast the two fish using a Venn diagram, and create a fish diamante poem.
Help learners discover methods to estimate animal population. They will participate in a simulation of catching and tagging fish in order to estimate the fish population. They scoop and count goldfish crackers, record data, and use formulas to determine a whole population based on their sample.
Fish Communities in the Hudson
Learning to read data tables is an important skill. Use this resource for your third, fourth, or fifth graders. Learners will will study tables of fish collection data to draw conclusions. The data is based on fish environments in the Hudson River estuary. Data tables and worksheets are included.
Which Fish Where?
Focusing on the fish in the Hudson River Estuary, this activity could be used to practice reading, graphing ,and critical-thinking skills. Answering the 6 questions should be interesting for students due to the interesting subject matter.
National Marine Sanctuaries Fish
Information is provided on Gray's Reef, Florida Keys, and Flower Garden Banks marine sanctuaries. Young marine biologists then visit the FishBase and REEF databases to collect fish species information for each location. They then complete a data table comparing the different marine sanctuaries. This a wonderful activity for giving your explorers experience with real databases.
Fish Tank Territories
Students observe swimming and resting patterns of aquarium fish to determine how different parts of the habitat are used. Different pairs of students should compare their results after several days to look for daily patterns.
How Big is the Ocean? and Gone Fishing
Reading Joanna Cole's The Magic School Bus on the Ocean Floor? Jump into the adventure with Ms. Frizzle using this reading activity guide. Learners begin by examining the globe, comparing the area covered by land and ocean. They are guided through this process with mathematical and visual analysis. Next, students complete a lab, examining a real fish and recording their observations. They compare the fish's swimming with that of a human. More ocean-related activities follow!
On the Trail of the Hudson's Migratory Fish
Ever wonder how scientists track fish underwater? Your class can learn how with this informative learning exercise. First, they will read a paragraph about androgynous fish, tagging, and data analysis. Then, your scientists must answer five short-answer questions. What an interesting topic!
It's shark week! In this problem, young mathematically minded marine biologists need to study the fish population by analyzing data over time. The emphasis is on understanding the average rate of change of the population and drawing conclusions about the behavior of the function.It is a great lesson that foreshadows concepts of rate of change and tangent lines to a specific point on a curve that will be explored in future years.
Fishing for Tens
Children brainstorm and list pairs of numbers that equal ten. In small groups they play Tens Go Fish, which is like regular Go Fish, except your goal is to make pairs that equal ten. Make math fun with this fishing game! A worksheet is included for individuals to record card values and create addition problems with. You will, however, need to make your own number cards.
Go Fish! Fish or other Sea Creature from Recycled Materials
Students brainstorm what a fish looks like determining the parts from schema and research. They create a unique and interesting 3-d sculpture of fish or underwater creature mostly from recycled materials, then examine the aesthetics of the project and how it will be displayed.
Gone Fishing: Still Life With Fish
Students explore lines and texture in a still-life painting. In this visual arts lesson, students study William Merrit Chase's painting "Still Life With Fish" and discuss the lines in the painting. Students choose a line to repeat in their own oil pastel painting.
