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.
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.
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.

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.
Ever wonder how scientists track fish underwater? Your class can learn how with this informative instructional activity. 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!
Students complete a variety of activities as they examine the ethics of acquiring and distributing fish as a food source. They touch on the ethics involved in genetically modified salmon, as well.
Sixth graders work together to complete an experiment about the quality of freshwater. In groups, they collect fresh water samples from a variety of sources and test the pH levels. After completing a KWL chart, they test the amout of dissolved oxygen in the samples. To end the lesson, they relate this information to the requirements that freshwater fish need to survive.
young scholars explore the important scientific concepts, as well as other important topics surrounding fish morphology, their defense strategies, general fish characteristics, and their ecosystems.
Students classify deep-sea fish, identify at least three characteristics that are essential to deep sea fish and their survival, name at least two constraints that deep-sea fish must deal with on a daily basis, and create their own deep-sea fish based upon what they have learned and observed.
