Sample screen from Build-a-Fish Developed by the Shedd Aquarium and Educational Web Adventures (Eduweb). Generously funded by the Illinois State Board of Education. Special thanks to the SEA teachers who lent their time and expertise to this project.


Build a Fish by choosing a body, mouth, and color/pattern, then release it into the reef! You can drive your fish around the reef in search of food and to evade predators. Can your fish find enough food without being eaten?
