Today our students engaged in a good dose of hands-on learning about the anatomy of a trout. This is part of a larger unit on ecosystems, which has included students analyzing cause and effect relationships within food webs and raising trout in the classroom.Thank you once again, Mr. Koepke, for donating the trout for our students to study! This has been one of the most memorable activities as many students from long ago still ask if we are still doing this activity.
Our students did a great job today during our trout observation and dissection today. A big thanks to DoLoresKoepke, Bill Koepke, and Dense Mapes for making the necessary arrangements and connelab ctions with the Pacfic Northwest Sportsmans Show in Portland this past weekend so that our students would have this opportunity.
On Monday, February 9th our 4th and 5th grade students will be participating in our biannual observation and dissection of rainbow trout as part of our Trout/River Ecosystem Unit. Since this activity will be a bit messy, we are requesting that all students wear appropriate clothing. If you would prefer to not have your child take part in this activity, we will assign an alternate related activity that will count for full credit. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
