I hope you were able to attend one!
Here are ideas to help you write about your chosen state-fish:
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SAY?
Once you choose a fish to illustrate and write about, you’ll learn tons about your fish. You’ll know what your fish looks like, where it lives, how it acts, what it eats, what is important for it to stay strong, how people are helping it, and more. Maybe you visited a lake, a stream, or a hatchery where your fish was born.
When you are ready to write about your fish, spend some quiet time thinking about what you’ve learned. What do you like most about this fish? What is it about this fish that is exciting to you? What do you want to tell others about it? If you’ve been making notes, highlight what jumps out at you. Narrow your ideas to what you think are the most interesting, important facts about your fish.
