Trout in the classroom is a national program that allows students to raise trout. This experience puts kids face to face with the unique life cycle of local fish. This year our students are raising rainbow trout. The first step in the process is to count and sort out the eggs when they arrive(pictured below). Most years we receive around 300 eggs in the fall and release them around May. Every day kids have the opportunity to maintain the tank, feed fish and talk about this project. Its a great way to create an authentic learning experience and bring a model ecosystem into your classroom. If you are interested in this program, check out this link or contact your local chapter of Trout Unlimited.
