While learning about the /f/sound that the letters f and ph make the preps had fun exploring fish.
We felt its skin, scales, fins, tail, eyes and teeth.
The teeth were sharp and the eyes felt like jelly. The fins were sharp with spikes. We could spread them out by gently pulling on them and we could make the tail flap too. This fish was very slippery and floppy. It looks quite colourful in these photos because we painted it so that we could make fish prints from it. You can see how we did them. We did smell a bit fishy after handling our fish but it was lots of fun and very intersting.
