Love that Fish Tank!

fish tank

I just love fish tanks to build visual attention.  It provides access through many characteristics.  I place the tank in the optimal visual field (visual field characteristic).  I can position the child near the tank (distance characteristic).  It is backlighted (light characteristic).  It is moving slowly (movement characteristic).  I can pick fish of highlighting colors (color characteristic).  The fish stay in a confined area for long periods (latency characteristic). I can chose dark backgrounds, sand and plant life as a contrast to the fish or place a black cloth across the entire back and have fewer, larger fish(visual complexity characteristic).

My students love this large yellow fish!
