A fish can “drown” if there is not enough oxygen in the water for them to breathe. This could happen if a body of water is really polluted, for example. Some people would also say a fish “drowns” when it’s taken out of the water, since it’s no longer able to breathe.
You can help prevent fish from having any “drowning” problems by respecting them and their environment. Likewise, you can keep yourself safe too by always following safety rules when you are in or near water.
Aside from their gills, what are some other things that make fish different from humans??
Fins are one good example, and so are tails! Fish also have scales and are known for laying eggs, which humans don't do either!
Draw a picture of your favorite kind of fish. Think about some of the fishiest features your friend should have!
