One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish Activities & Printables
The One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish printable pack includes these activities:
Math Activity: Counting
Use Goldfish Crackers as a manipulative. Enjoy counting them (you can even use them for story problems)! When you finish your math fun, eat your manipulatives!
If you buy colored fish, try the fish graph. You can also use the Counting Fish Math Mat and Fish Maze printable to practice counting.
Math Activity: Opposites
Old fish and new fish are opposites. Help your student complete the opposites flap books.
Math Activity: Fish Knock-Out! Game
Laminate the game board, if desired. You will need a pair of dice for this game. Let your student roll the dice. Add the sum and place a marker on the number to knock it out. Try to knock out all the numbers!
You can make this a two player game by printing a second game board and taking turns rolling the dice. The first person to knock out all the numbers on their board is the winner.
Art Activity: Painting
Mix some corn syrup with blue food coloring. Paint the mixture onto fish bowl shaped construction paper and glue on paper fish and plants. After the syrup has set (about 2 hours) cover with plastic wrap to cut down on the stickiness.
Science Activity: Animals
Notice the different amount of feet (or legs) on the animals (2, 4, 6). Sort the animals and paste them to the chart.
Language Arts Activity: Creative Thinking, Writing, and Drawing
Look at Dr. Seuss’ drawings of animals throughout One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Ask your child, “what animal does this resemble?”
On page 18 there is a Wump. It looks like a camel, but it has seven humps. Why did Dr. Seuss name it a Wump? (because he needed something to rhyme with hump!) Can you find other illustrations of rhyming names? Why did he call one a Zeep? Seuss has many other creations – a Zans (that can open cans), a Gox (that can box), a Ying (that can sing), a Yink (that likes to wink and drink pink ink).
Help your student create an animal. Think of something special it can do, then help your student think up a name that rhymes with the animal’s talent. (Examples: a Grance (that can dance), a Zzar (in a car), a Zeed (that likes to read).
Cut out the cards and let your student have fun mixing up the animals (heads and tails). Let him glue down his final creations and give them special Seuss-y names!
