Challenge #1

Can you draw a school of fish swimming?

Did you know: Fish can form schools containing millions of fish. They use their eyes and something called a lateral line to hold their places in the school. The lateral line is a row of pores running along the fish’s sides from head to tail. Special hairs in the pores sense changes in water pressure from the movements of other fish or predators.

Challenge #3

Can you draw a fish walking on land?

Did you know: The mudskipper fish has the ability to spend half of its time outside of the water and actually use its fins to ‘walk’ on land. It breathes out of water in two ways: through a portable water supply that is maintained in its gill chambers and also through wet skin pores.
