Trout Observation and Dissection
We kicked off our salmon science unit with a bang! Yesterday afternoon our students participated in a true hands-on experience by observing and dissecting rainbow trout. Students learned about the features and functions of the eternal and intermal parts of the fish. The fish were provided courtesy of Mrs. Mapes and her neighbor Bill Koepke. Mr. Keopke obtained the fish from the Sportsman’s Expo in Portland this past week. Big thatks to Mrs. Mapes and Bill! We will be studying the species, anatomy, salmon life cycle, and habitat over the next few weeks. Look for posts about our classroom fish hatching project coming very soon.
