Fish Faces!

We read Fish Faces this week and I wanted to share a fun writing activity that we did.  Cute fish books!


We began by reading this great book!  Fish Faces contains wonderful photographs of all sorts of fish.  My students were fascinated {and even a little grossed out} by the photos!



We used a tree map to organize the information we learned from the book.  I organized the map so that it would be easier for my students to create sentences about fish.

I made the little fish books by stapling construction paper around 3 pieces of lined paper, and then traced and cut the fish shape.  I used 3 pieces of paper so that the kids could write one sentence from each column of the tree map, one sentence per page.

Here are some of the sentences.










I can't wait to hang these up around the room!
