Our trip to Absolutely Fishwas absolutely wonderful. The children had the opportunity to learn about the many kinds of tropical and fresh water fish, as well as beautiful coral and other ocean life. Many of the children were able to touch a pleco or a starfish. They saw a puffer fish blow up right before their eyes. We are grateful to Patrick Donson, the shop owner, for his fascinating and informative tour. During morning meeting, the children reflected on their favorite part of the trip to Absolutely Fish. In order to revisit their experience and refresh their memories, they watched a slide show of photographs taken at the fish store. Then, using black sharpies and actual photographs of their favorite fish, the children drew fish portraits. They focused on the distinctive anatomical features of the fish and other sea animals that they had seen.
