Fish can be an important way of learning about a wide variety of topics and we are here to help you!
We've developed six great lesson plans, plus videos and downloadable materials for teachers to use in the classroom with their students - you can view lesson plans online here in the Education section of our website or, if you prefer, you can order one of our free Fish is the Dish education resource packs.
The lessons and resources are designed to engage children with fish as a food, the different species of fish, fish dishes and the health benefits of eating fish while tying into your school's curriculum.
The resources focus on six species of fish - coley, cod, haddock, prawns, mussels and mackerel - which represent white fish, shellfish and oily fish. Key activities include making simple, tasty fish dishes and tasting different fish.
The pack and online resources provide teachers with the tools they need to deliver fun and engaging lessons for children. The home-school workbooks provide activities for children to work on at home with their parent/carer to encourage engagement.
