The Rainbow Fish is a beautiful story about a fish who learns the true meaning of friendship by sharing her shiny scales. This story focuses on morals and the value of being an individual. This would be a great opportunity to do a character traits board in the classroom. I would have a big fish without any scales and have my students write on shiny scales to add to the fish. The scales would include character traits that can be found in the story as well as character traits that the students themselves possess.
