The Salmon Game

1st graders constructed these fabulous salmon games that highlight the trials and tribulations salmon face in the wild.


There are bears, eagles, pollution, oil spills, and of course- humans! There are also helpful factors for salmon such as water flow, fish ladders, insects & food, and rocks & logs to hide under and stay safe. Bad factors would make a player go back spaces, with positive factors helping players advance.DSC_1445

They absolutely loved creating and playing this game. It was fun, artistic, scientific, and engaging. A teacher remarked to me how how engaged the students were as they played eachother’s games. They got to take them home and hopefully school their parents in the art of being salmon.
