Have you ever been fishing? One of my kids LOVES to go fishing, so chances are good we will do that at some point this simmer. Whether you are a skilled angler or starting out, the parts of a fish are important to know. In school when studying science and life cycles, you might come across a fish related activity or learning unit. There’s so much to learn about animals, insects and fish and there are so many fun ways to make those lessons resonate with kids.
When I was in school, I did several life cycle assignments and ecosystem assignments involving collecting tadpoles and more. One year we did a whole pond ecosystem complete with small aquarium and whatever we had scooped up out of a creek nearby our apartment in Guelph Ontario. We had so much fun doing that science project in senior elementary school.

Those cute hands on school science projects were amazing opportunities for me to learn, apply and retain the information. Sometimes that is all it takes to make those lessons memorable. Later on, we went on to have frogs and fish and even a turtle as a childhood pet. Watching them grow and learning about how to take care of each one was a great opportunity for everyone. Eventually we got a cat and fish plus cats, well we all know how that goes, right?

Fish biology and fish facts are pretty simple to learn. Use this printable if your kids are remote learning, or home during the summer and bored. It is super simple to print and share. All you really need is glue and scissors plus a printer and printer paper of course.
How to Print
Just click on the link below and you can effortlessly download this file of fish information and facts. This project is clearly intended for a younger child. I’d estimate most kids around ages 4-8 would enjoy doing this. You know your child best but any older than that and they would probably give you side eye for suggesting this activity.
