An aquarium can be defined two ways.

  1. A tank or other container (fish bowl) filled with water in which water animals and plants are kept. This container is also called a fish tank.

  2. A building where water (aquatic) animals are kept, displayed and studied. An aquarium can be within a public aquarium, a marine park or zoo.

Trace letter A's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter. Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page.

Children can trace and color the letter A's. After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the image. Write the word aquarium on the finished coloring page.

Handwriting worksheet tips:

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letter correctly.

During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

Have the children find all the letter A's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them.
