Daily Challenge

Morning everyone!

Today your daily challenge is to find out how fish can breathe underwater! Your clue is that they have a special part of their body that us humans don't have.

I have linked a cBeebies episode below which explores this so ask your child to watch this and if possible discuss the episode with them to draw their attention to the gills and how the fish are breathing. 

Once you have watched the episode then have a look at the pictures below, can you spot the gills on the fish and the shark? Where abouts are they? Can you remember why they are important?





To embed this new information, you could create a fish with your child. It could be a drawing, painting or junk model ... see if they remember to add the gills onto their creation. If not, you can discuss what they are missing and again, ask why they are important.
