Simple Fish Anatomy Diagram

Here's a simple diagram of a fish that the kids can label and color. It's a little follow-up to yesterday's blog post with the fish word search puzzle and fish craft activities. It's  a good way to review some of the vocabulary that was on the fish word search.

gills - organs used for breathing
scales - outside covering of most fish
fins - used for swimming and balancing in water

 Top Row: mouth, eye
Bottom Row: gills, scales, fin, tail fin

This diagram is now at my website. Just click on the picture above to grab your copy.

Have fun with fish.

Boston Strong - Teachers for Boston

Boston Strong - Teachers for Boston
Michaela at The Center Based Classroom has put together a fundraiser to raise money for the victims of last week's bombing at the Boston Marathan.

Michaela asked sellers at the site Teachers Pay Teachers if they would like to donate products to the fundraiser from their TpT stores. She received an overwhelming response. You can see the pictures below of all the teaching products that were donated.

There are 2 bundles. The 1st bundle is for Grades K-2 and is valued at $150. The 2nd bundle is for Grades 3-6 and is valued at $170.

You can purchase either bundle for $20 and the ENTIRE DONATION goes to the ONE FUND to help victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

To learn more about this wonderful fundraiser and/or to purchase a bundle in which the entire donation goes to the One Fund, click on the top picture above to go to Michaela's blog.
