One Fish, Two Fish is a hands-on activity for younger students using jellybeans and paper fish to simulate fish populations in three oceans. The goal of the activity is to teach early elementary students about fisheries resource management: when, where and how we fish, and why we must fish responsibly to ensure a future for the fish we like to eat.
In the activity, students will observe and discuss the "oceans" created by the teacher and answer questions based on what they see. Through the observations and discussions, the students will learn about offspring viability, life expectancy, and species distribution.
One Fish, Two Fish would be a good simulation activity to support the concept of conservation for younger students in the Science classroom. It could be used later in a unit once the students have been introduced to the topic in order to help solidify their understanding. The resource could be used to support World Fisheries Day on November 21st.
