Live Specimens

There's something about having live specimens in the classroom that intrigues the kids unlike any teaching technique. Here they are being today's Salmon Scientists. Everyday during silent reading two kids park themselves on chairs in front of the salmon tank for a good 20 minutes just watching and recording what they see. Our little salmon eggs have been hatching into baby salmon, called alevin, the last couple days and their excitement is contagious.
