Scottish Curriculum

Six great lesson plans aimed at ages 5-8, plus videos and downloadable material for teachers to use in the classroom.

The Fish is the Dish Education Resources Pack is a set of interdisciplinary lessons and resources designed to engage children with fish as a food, the different species of fish, fish dishes and the health benefits of eating fish.

The resources focus on six species of fish - cod, haddock, crab, langoustine, mussels and mackerel - which represent white fish, shellfish and oily fish.

Key activities include making simple, tasty fish dishes such as Tropical prawn/langoustine rice, Crunchy crab cakes and tasting different fish.

The pack and online resources provide teachers with the tools they need to deliver fun and engaging lessons for their pupils. The home-school workbooks provide activities for children to work on at home with their parent/carer (more information) to encourage engagement.

Here are the full Teacher notes. We recommend that you run this as a full theme with all six lessons, however we have broken the teacher notes down for each of the lessons in case you wish to run one specific lesson in isolation.
