It was a delightfully sunny day and it was a perfect time for our annual kindergarten salmon obstacle course! We used hoops & bowling pins to simulate the rocks and logs on a salmons journey. We also had students with scarves pretending to be bears and eagles swiping at salmon. Other students threw foam balls of trash in the streams of the swimming salmon. We even had some fisher-folks with foam sticks tryin’ to fry up the salmon. These kind of interactive & kinetic activities really get kids involved and excited. Who wants to talk about salmon when they can be salmon! Our salmon will have a tough “road” ahead and this activity reinforces that!
If you haven’t yet seen the baby Orca salmon, they are in the hallway near the office!
