Salmon madness! We got our lovely eggs- all 160 of them and they had a successful weekend (only 4 casualties). Kids are fired up to see them! We finished up our amazing SALMONOPOLY boardgames- parents have already reported heated games at home full of miscellaneous rules and salmon-y quirks. It’s a hard knock life for salmon- and the games are full of oil spills, dams, eagle attacks and evil fisherman- this makes for a raucous game that is fun and educational aka EDUTAINMENT.
Orca salmon fever is gripping the building as we prepare to receive our salmon eggs that we will raise for over 100 days. They will then be released into Lake Washington by our students around Earth Day. This is our 6th year raising salmon and it’s always a fun and exciting affair.
We developed “Salmonopoly” board games that detail the trials & tribulations of Coho salmon as they live their lives escaping predators & bypassing danger all the time. Swiped by a bear!?! Move back 2 spaces! Catch a fish ladder?!? Move ahead 3 spaces! Become fish & chips?!?! Go back to start!
Next week we will finish the board games and play them in full on celebration mode when the eggs arrive!
