Want to bring salmon science to your classroom? FISH offers several programs designed to teach students about Pacific salmon and the importance of watersheds.
"Those Amazing Salmon," primarily for elementary school students who are preparing to visit the hatchery. The presentation consists of a slideshow reviewing the Pacific salmon life cycle along with their habitat needs, predators and challenges, the value of watersheds and hatchery operations.
Grades K-1: 30-minute slide show and discussion, acting out the salmon life cycle and sharing time.
Grades 2-6: 45- to 60-minute slide show, discussion and question-and-answer session. Choice of three activities following the slide show: the Northwest Native American legend (15 minutes), hands-on watershed activity (20-30 minutes) or “Stump the Students” salmon quiz game (20-30 minutes).
Enviroscape: Students see how pollution can impact watersheds with this interactive, hands-on watershed model.
Puget Sound Game: Students practice real-life decision making about situations that impact the waters of Puget Sound.
COST: The in-class presentation given to classes that are preparing for a hatchery field trip is free, although donations are gladly accepted. For the Enviroscape, Puget Sound Game and presentations that do not coincide with a field trip, FISH requests a $25 donation per session. FISH requests a donation of $50 for visits outside of King County.
For more information about these presentations, please contact FISH Education Coordinator Celina Steiger at 425-392-1118 or Celina@issaquahfish.org
FISH would love to be a part of your school’s science fair!
We welcome the opportunity to share our fascination about salmon with whole families.
FISH often brings a salmon to dissect to show the internal parts of a salmon. In addition, FISH brings several hands-on display items, including a microscope, for students and families to investigate. To help us cover our costs, we ask for a $50 donation.
If you would like this wonderful addition to your science fair, please send an email to email@example.com with the following information:
