Middle School Salmon in the Classroom

Salmon in the Classroom

Salmon in the Classroom is not just another science activity, but a very interactive, participatory program in which students raise salmon and ultimately are responsible for their survival and release. Students raise salmon to release while learning about many aspects of Science including water testing, anatomy, invasive species, ecosystems and more. You can learn much more about this project here. Mr. Janetzke's 7th and 8th graders are participating in this project this year, and they received their eggs on November 17th. The live stream is below where you can watch the salmon progress from egg to alevin to fry over the next few months. Be sure to check back frequently between now and Christmas Break to see the salmon hatching.

For more information, feel free to reach out to Mr. Janetzke at kjanetzke@portlandk12.org.
