Why are starfish named starfish?
Well a starfish is called a starfish because,it is shaped like a star. (answer found by 10 year old Katie Shymonowicz( Shy-mon-o-witz) Katie is right, but I must add that a starfish is no longer called a starfish. It is now called a "sea star." Starfish was a misnomer as it wasn't a fish. But they get the name sea star because they live in the ocean and they are shaped like a star. (answer found by 11 year old Megan Varney)
