Gaudy Goldfish Kit

(in stock)


Grades 6–8. Goldfish are the most common aquarium fish in the world. Through thousands of years of selective breeding, they have produced a variety of physical characteristics and traits. Some of which are very desirable amongst hobbyists, collectors, and kids who want their first pet. Rare, unique, and fancy goldfish can sell for thousands of dollars each. In this fun and impactful series of activities, students take on the role of goldfish breeders to investigate genetic phenotypes, analyze and interpret offspring data to determine inheritance patterns, and prepare a goldfish breeding plan.

Challenge your students to ask their own questions and define problems, while analyzing and interpreting data to design and explain their solutions. Compete to find out which students will develop the most successful goldfish business. Using the included card sets featuring beautiful graphics, they have fun building their stock of fancy goldfish, all while learning the foundations of genetics. These high-quality materials can be used in your classroom or at home for many years to come. This classroom kit is designed for 32 students working in groups of 4. FREE 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction included.
