Science: Life Cycle of the Salmon

posted Feb 1, 2012, 12:19 PM by Sue Hersey
Mr. Charlie Kelly from Fish Friends Program was a guest speaker this week.  He was teaching us about the life cycle of the salmon.  Fourth grade has a large aquarium in Mrs. Gaston's classroom, and Mr. Kelly brought us about 200 salmon eggs.  As part of a service learning project, we will be monitoring the temperature in the aquarium and observing the changes in their development until they reach the fry stage.  Then in May, we will take a field trip to the Union River and release the fry.  We are helping the endangered salmon in our state.  We will also have a tour of the Green Lake Fish Hatchery and see how they raise the salmon eggs there.
