Helps
1.    Help the children find the scripture and review the stories.
2.    See resources below on the Indian     Squanto.
3.    TAsk someone who has a pet fish or works in a pet store to talk to the children. Or get general fish care instructions from a pet store or library and discuss these with the children. Learn about care, food (when and what to feed a fish) and aquariums. Remember, our pet fish depends on us to care for them—they cannot care for themselves.
4.    Learn about 2 types of fish that live naturally. Discuss how we  can help by keeping the water clean. Never put garbage in lakes or the ocean.
5.    Fish game:   
Make a stick fishing pole with a string and magnet on the end. “Go fish” for goodies like little Bibles, stickers, gummie fish, etc. Crafts: (also see resources below).
a.    Make a paper plate aquarium—use 2 paper plates, cut a round circle in one, put clear or blue-clear plastic wrap on it to make it look like a window into an aquarium. Place fish sticker and draw seaweed/plants on the uncut plate. Glue both plates together, so it is like an aquarium with seethrough glass.
b.    Felt fish. Prepared pre-cut felt fish shapes and have the children decorate them with
sequins.
