Year 1 Fish - dissection and discovery!

Fish - dissection and discovery!

After Year 1 painted the fish, they carried out a more scientific procedure – Year 1 dissected them!

They discovered the air bladder that helps a fish float.

They discovered the gills which allow a fish to breath under water.

They located the fish heart.

They located the intestine and stomach.

Year 1 learn that fish can have a tongue and teeth – some have teeth on their tongues!

After Year 1 discovered what was inside the fish they produced a scientific drawing with annotations.

It was VERY smelly but incredibly interesting!
