There are quite a few characteristics that make these essays expository. The article on how to clean a fish tells how to do something; therefore, the article is teaching me how to clean a fish.

The organization type that the author used for “A Soul as Free as the Air” was time order. Time order is an expository essay that organizes information by putting it the form a written timeline. This means an essay can start at the beginning of a person’s life and go all the way to the end of someone’s life. The type of organization that the author used for the essay “How to Clean a Fish” was the informative process. This type of essay is a step by step process on how to do something.
