This activity was part of our P is for Pet week theme.
Mini Piwi learnt about a goldfish habitat by making a fun dessert. In the morning we made up some blue jello with canned mandarins. The Piwi's didn't know what it was for, they were just happy I was letting them have Jello (mean mama lol!). I surprised them with this set up.
Blue Jello (water), Mandarins (fish), crushed cookies (gravel), goldfish (extra fish), mini choc. chips (fish food).
Next we added the 'water' and the fish.I explained we couldn't add a lot of goldfish because they needed room to swim around.
Just a pinch of 'fish food' so the fish don't get sick
Yummy Fish Tank!
I used this fish tank site for reference.
After our snack Mini Piwi finished up fish day with some sorting.
