The student scientists at Boise-Eliot/Humbolt have been busy! The hundreds of eggs in their tank have hatched and the students have been able to observe salmon fry and integrate them into their classroom lessons. Last week, ennifer Rowlen & Cheri Anderson from the Office of Information & Education for the Columbia River Gorge National Fish Hatchery Complex led the student in the “Fashion a Fish” lesson. Fashion a Fish is a creative art lesson where students create a “fish” with unique adaptations and the habitat they need to survive in using those special adaptions. Students work individually or in teams and use their imaginations to create the fish and their habitats.
