There's something fishy going on
May 22 2014

There have been some fishy goings on at the Twabuka Reading Club recently, as the students have been learning all about…fish.

Through their latest reading book, the children discovered that there are around 25,000 species of fish - and that’s just the ones that have already been categorized.  An estimated 15,000 more are thought to exist that have not yet been discovered.  Along with learning about the diets of different fish, their survival techniques and colourful markings, they also found out some fun facts:

  • The fastest fish can swim almost 112 kilometres per hour - that’s very fast!
  • The heaviest fish weighs 13,608 kilograms - that’s very heavy!
  • The longest fish are sharks, which can grow up to 15 metres - that’s very long!
  • The smallest fish is less than 0.8 centimetres long - that’s very small!

As you can see, this lesson not only continued to develop the student’s reading skills; it also taught them a lot about fish!
