Orca Salmon swim again!

The tank where magic happens
It’s that time of year again, where we raise cute little baby salmon and release them into Lake Washington around Earth Day. This school wide project always generates a lot of excitement as students study salmon ecosystems, life cycles, and the Native historical significance of salmon. The kindergarteners got to work on showing salmon life cycles through art and science. The hallway looks like an art aquarium! It will keep growing more colorful as we learn more.
Stay tuned as we study the salmon more and more as they grow and grow. Today we learned about how they transform and grow. Here’s the order it happens.

egg> alevin> frye> parr> smolt> adult. They are frye now!
