Hands on Learning: Fishery Tour and Halloween Experiments

I absolutely love the days we can do hands on things for our learning. It makes our days flow that much easier and it seems the learning is way more interesting then some of our regular school days. This week we toured the fishery and learned about the different fish that come to spawn. We also did five different Halloween themed experiments. One was a fail but that is ok as we will try again next week 🙂

C.D. “Buzz” Besadny Anadromoous Fisheries Facility Homeschool Tour

Today I had arranged for a bunch of homeschoolers to get together and tour one of the fisheries near us. I thought it was very interesting. Learned a lot of things I didn’t know as well. The kids loved it as well. I really enjoyed listening to the kids asking questions as well.

Right now the Chinook Salmon are running and they are half way through there spawning. I had no idea that once they hatched and they became finger fish I think she said they release them back into the river so they get the scent of the river and that is where they come back to spawn. They said you don’t want to eat salmon over 35 inches as the bigger they are the more pollution they are filled with. Didn’t quite understand that one but was like ok.
