Call out movements for the
children to perform, such as Walk, skip, hop, jump, waddle, etc. When you
call "Freeze!" they must stop immediately and hold the
positions they are in.

pencil and paper, strainer, styrofoam, Yardstick or dowel, masking tape,
bucket or wading pool.
optional: waterproof markers, scissors
First, have the child draw fish shapes on
the paper (make sure they are no longer than the diameter of your
strainer). Then cut the fish out. Next, have your kids trace the fish onto
a sheet of styrofoam. finally, cut out the styro. fish (you will probably
have to do this part!). You can have the kids decorate the fish with
markers, but you'll have to use waterproof ink---make sure to take
appropriate precautions. To make a "fishing pole" attach the
handle of the strainer to the yardstick or dowel with masking tape. Fill
the bucket or wading pool with water and let the fish loose in their
native habitat. Issue some fishing permits (***I
know you all know this already **supervise closely around water)
and the kids are ready for a day at the fishing hole!! Make up some
stories about the ones that got away!!!

Make a fishing game by cutting out fish
shapes from construction paper and attaching paper clips to the head of
the fish. Use a straw to make a pole and attach yarn for the line. Use
either a magnet, or another paper clip bent like a hook and let the kids
fish for their prey! I have used this to learn colors, if they can name
the color of the fish they can keep it. whoever has the most fish wins.
You can also use it for letters, numbers, shapes or anything you are
trying to teach.
