FREE Aquarium Study with Printables

Just recently my husband cleaned our 55 gallon fish tank to prepare for use. While I was watching him, I was thinking of all the learning opportunities that can come from having an aquarium.  I came up with the following list, resources and printables.

1) Learning to properly set-up a fish tank

Before you begin setting up your aquarium, you'll want to have a good idea of what you want it to look like upon completion. This is a fantastic opportunity for kids to get creative. I have created a printout that will allow them to design an aquarium.

Provides great ideas for a lesson

2) Gathering equipment you will need and researching definitions your child may not know ( I have provided a few links):

  • Aquarium
  • Gravel
  • Aquarium filter pump
  • Replacement filters
  • Fish net
  • Fish food
  • Aquarium vacuum
  • Decorations
  • Aquarium Glass Scrubber
  • Aquarium test kits to test water parameters and monitor the nitrogen cycle
  • Heater

  • Don't plan on setting up an aquarium? 
    Take a trip to one or observe one online.

    If you're taking a trip to the aquarium any time soon, be sure to print out this Aquarium Passport to bring along!

    Aquardio is a live fish tank with an online portal that allows users to take a break and feed the fish, or simply observe and de-stress.

    1. As a heads up, I was having a lot of trouble with the Virtual Fish Tank. It may be too old to work on newer computers... Google Chrome said it wouldn't support the shockwave player any more and tried it in Mozilla and it kept getting hung up and had a window pop up saying it was going to have issues playing.

      1. Thank you for commenting and for the heads up. I also tried and had the same issues. I have found a different game that you may enjoy. It can be found at the following link. http://www.freeworldgroup.com/games4/gameindex/fishtycoon.htm

    2. I have learnt a unique thing to read this article. This technique is very useful for kids. I will definitely try this. It is the best learning opportunities. Thanks for the share. I will be back soon. Keep posting like this way.
