Our Salmon are Hatching!

Our chinook salmon eggs are beginning to hatch.  Unlike our previous trout egg hatches in which most eggs hatch in a single day, the chinook eggs are gradually hatching. Over the past two weeks our students have conducted daily water tests and observations, used math to calculate hatch date predictions and survival rates, learned about food chains and webs, and they are currently creating scale drawings of salmon. In the coming weeks we will study energy and learn how salmon and energy needs must coexist.
