On the last day of school, the fourth graders went from raising trout to releasing them. Students had a lot of fun with the opportunity to take care of the fish for four months. The trout first arrived to us as eggs and students were able to see their life cycle stages first hand. Also, many of the students had a chance to test the pH of the water, feed the fish, and pump new water into the tank over the course of their time with us. Students were a little sad in that they finally had to let their trout go. They were able to name a fish and throw the trout into their new home at Schramm Park. While there, students were also able to fish for bass and perch. They had a lot of fun and luck. There were quite a bit of fish caught. All in all, students had a great time & we look forward to raising trout again next year!
