Here is a summer fun activity for everyone: Let’s Go Fishin’! And to get you started, the National Park Service has provided a free 9-page activity book that you can download.
The colorful book includes:
- Safety tips.
- Types of fish.
- Fishing history.
- Types of fishing (i.e., lake, ice, deep sea, etc.)
- Fishing gear.
- Fishing tips.
As summer winds down, this is a great free resource to take advantage of local parks and waterways to dip in the line — even if the ultimate purpose is to throw the catch back. And, meanwhile, you can learn quite a bit about fish!
Not to schooly it up too much, but if so inclined you might include photos of those fish you catch (or a description of the one that got away) in a notebook.
