Fishy Fish

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.

Henry David Thoreau

Fishy Fish Here is a fun freebie!

A Very Fun Freebie

Here is a fun end of the year activity. I provide a list of names of actual fish. Fish have the most awesome names! The kids then draw a literal picture of what the fish should look like. A dogfish, a pinecone fish, a knife fish, a jellynose fish, etc. The kids love deciding which fish to draw. The next step is to write a sentence describing how they think the fish got its name. Then the students look up the fish on the internet. They draw what the fish actually looks like. They try to find out how it actually got its name, but if they can’t find that information, they just share a fact they discovered about the fish.

Here is my list of fish:

My students have asked do this again and again in their free time!
