All fish live in water, they breathe with gills and have fins to swim.
The biggest fish in the world is the whale shark. It feeds on plankton. Its white spotted coloration make these gentle giant easy to distinguish.
(The biggest animal in the world, also found in water, is a mammal not a fish: the Antarctic blue whale).
On this illustration you can compare the size of a person with the size of the whale shark (and also the blue whale).
Activity: Learn parts of the fish
Cut the names of the fish different parts (yellow rectangles) then ask your child to place it on the correct spot using glue. Read them back to her/him.
Here is a link to print at home:
Activity: Count the fish Draw the outline of your hands and glue them (except for the fingers) on piece of paper. You can count the fish using the finger or add the fish.
You can also write some basic additions (3 + 2 = ?) and use the fish to find the total. It makes counting fun.
If you feel your child is ready for subtractions, start simple and use a shark to eat (subtract) the fish ("let's say the shark eats 3 fish, how many are left?")
On top of a page write hers/his name and ask him to write it under. Ask her/him to read each letter. Always be patient and encouraging.
