Take An Aquarium Word Trip With Dictionary.com

To help you get into full teacher and tour-guide mode, we’ve teamed up with Dictionary.com to put together an educational language guide for you to reference as you’re exploring the aquarium with your kids.  Here is an example:

– – –

Gill

Fish don’t breathe the same way that humans do. Fish have gills!

gill is the respiratory organ of aquatic animals that allows them to breathe the oxygen that is dissolved in the water. Water is forced past the fish’s gills, which contain a number of tiny blood vessels. Oxygen seeps into the fish’s blood through these tiny gills, and carbon dioxide seeps out.
