English Class fourth graders learned about the life cycle of salmon today as part of their unit on fish in environmental studies. They learned how salmon migrate back to the same river from which they were spawned by watching a short video. Then, working with a partner, the pupils read a story about salmon. They practiced verbal skills by retelling the story. On a map they located rivers where salmon spawn in Finland.
In their art lesson the fourth graders created fish collages to continue the fish theme. It just so happened that salmon soup was on the school lunch menu today to round out the package!
