Come explore through fun, hands-on activities, how you can use the zebrafish (Danio rerio), a freshwater fish at the forefront of scientific research, to make a big splash in your science classroom. These hardy fish commonly found in pet stores can be easily maintained in a classroom and serve as robust instructional tools to drive cutting-edge, real-world investigations. Discover the value of zebrafish to bring alive complex topics including cell structure and processes; growth, development, and reproduction of organisms; and multiple topics in ecology and aquatic science. Explore how you can use the popular Glowfish to excite your learners about biotechnology, heredity, and genetics. Classroom-ready resources including vendor information for these organisms, care and feeding requirements, links to free teaching resources and alignments to TEKS across grade levels will be provided.
