You can print these out - cut them a part and put in a fish bowl and
have the students select their fish name. It looks like my list of
fish names may have come from Sue? That file was from several years
ago (maybe 2001?). This file will only be online for a few days - so
save it now.
I found several different dogfish that would be fun (Spiny Dogfish)
I also found a file of Fish Names links - but in checking most of the
links were broken. Here are some that are still active.
I did fish projects in the spring - That is when I did ceramic fish
with 7th graders - I planned to draw real fish first (real live
goldfish and fighter
fish) -- the next project was going to be fish puns clay sculpture.
This should keep you busy for a while selecting fun names to illustrate.
Maybe even allow your student to "pick three" - in case nothing comes
to mind when they select their first name. Then even allow them to
trade names if they want.... but make sure each student has a
different name to illustrate.
I will ask Theresa if she has a list of bird names on file.
