Lesson Plan

Animals moving in water

Model how fish or other animal's shapes are adaptations for how they move through water, and how they regulate their depth in the water.
Science content (2016 curriculum): 
Biology: Features, Adaptations of Living Things (K, 1, 3, 7)

Introduce the lesson: the activities model ways that fish and other animals are adapted for moving through water.
Do the two activities, with discussion after each.


For Aboriginal Focus School SRP, this was combined into one lesson with the Fish feeding methods in water activity.
