Introduction/Abstract to Lesson Plan (max. 100 Words) Include aspects of the lesson that are unique and innovative. Over millions of years, fish have adapted their body plan (i.e., color pattern, tail shape) to their habitats. This lesson introduces students to local GA fish species and has them “read” the fish to make inferences about their biology. The lesson concludes with an activity where students create their own hypothetical fish species.
