Today I was doing some research because in the spring we are going to have some Great-Lakes-related programs. I am supposed to find an expert to come give a talk about the fish and other animals that live in the lakes. I'm going for something cheesy and dramatic like "Monsters of Lake Michigan," but I still thought I'd start with the university extension program and our state's department of natural resources to see if they kept a list of educators or program providers on the topic. On the DNR's website, I came across an irresistible link to "Salmon in the Classroom," which, surprisingly and awesomely, is exactly what it sounds like:
instrumental learning experience grants 3rd grade and older students
the opportunity to raise, care for and maintain the salmon in their
classroom from fall until spring."
Teachers, take note.
