This unit is designed to provide an enhanced understanding and appreciation for general fish anatomy and the physical adaptations they have developed over time to increase their ability to live and survive in the water. They will understand that while fish come in many shapes, sizes, and colors they all share the same basic anatomy with some specialized structures necessary for survival. Activities include a thought swap on what a fish needs to survive, dressing up as a fish, observing and comparing fresh fish, and more.
