Fishing for Knowledge In October, Jewett Elementary 5th grade students had the opportunity to attend an educational field trip to the Platte River State Fish Hatchery. The Department of Natural Resources offers tours of this impressive facility to schools in the area during the annual Coho salmon run. Some of the science and social studies curriculum standards that were brought to life in this interactive tour included ecosystems, life cycles, human-environment interaction, Michigan history, and economics. On this year’s tour, particular attention was given to the introduction of the Pacific Salmon species to our Great Lakes to help combat the Alewife, an invasive species that once plagued our shorelines in the heat of the summer. Of the interesting experiences, watching the DNR personnel performing the egg harvest was the highlight. On the day of our tour, students were able to see and learn about the steps in the process that contribute to the impressive fishery that Michigan has to offer. A big thank you to our DNR personnel for bringing important concepts to life.
📚 Books for Kids 📚 K-5 Students picked out 2 books each this week, to keep for their very own.
