For lots of first graders, “fish” are pets. Your kid might have encountered them in a tank in your living room, a classroom or waiting room. When it comes to eating the stuff, if you can convince a kid to even think about it, then it's usually filleted or canned, and it's hard to see how it came from a lake or sea. In this activity your kid will try his hand at the japanese art form of gyotaku, a traditional method of fish printing. It's a delightful way to bridge the gap between art and life science discovery. Not only is the result cool, but it looks a bit like a fossil print.
