Have you ever been fishing?
What did you observe when you looked at the fish?


  1. dear B4
    I think that we did a great job of cooking the fish and trying the fish.The fish was about 100 cm or lower. We had to use two chopping boards to look at the fish and feel it.
    On Friday we cooked the fish up. All of the B4 people got a job to help with the fish.
    bye for now

  2. Dear B4
    We were cutting our fish up so we could look inside it and eat it.
    When it was cooked we gave some to the other classes.
    Some people touched the guts.

    from Amy.
