Trout in the Classroom – Update

Submitted by Laura Horowitz


trout3The trout eggs arrived the second week of November and Mrs. Green’s seventh grade students are busy learning how to test and balance the aquarium environment. They are also learning how to carefully remove any of the eggs that die. As illustrated in the diagram (left) , Brook Trout Life Cycle,  we are in the Winter stage right now. Stay tuned for further updates.

Kathleen Green’s participation in the Trout in the Classroom program was made possible through a unique partnership between PA Fish and Boat Commission and PA Council of Trout Unlimited. This partnership, coupled with assistance from local conservation organizations, was created to introduce Pennsylvania students to coldwater resources and their importance to all communities. The partnership also provides brook trout eggs, trout food, technical assistance, curriculum connections and teacher workshops each year.
