Final Days of Trout in the Classroom

GREEN's 4th graders have enjoyed raising rainbow trout from egg to fingerling. This week Mr. Isaacs came and dissected a trout in order to give the students the opportunity to observe the scales, bones and tissue with microscopes.

On Saturday, students and their families enjoyed an afternoon at Table Rock State Park. The plan was to release the fingerlings into their natural habitat but unfortunately the trout did not survive the trip. Ranger Scott explored with the students the trout's natural habitat and was able to show the students some native fish  that share the same habitat.

4th graders will continue their trout exploration by researching trout species, learning songs, performing in a play and completing an art activity in order to present GREEN's 2nd Annual Trout Expo in May.
