Learning About Salmon

Today was our day of inquiry on Salmon.  Since December we have been following closely the salmon eggs that are developing in Mme Kell's classroom.  We watched them turn from a red egg, to  alevin, and they are now salmon fry. It's been exciting to see their changes over time.  Today we wanted to learn even more about salmon.

We started our morning in our own Today's Meet room where we shared what we knew about Salmon and what we wondered.  Here are a few photos of us adding information.  If you're curious what we were typing the entire transcript can be found at the end of this blog post.



Once we had our wonders up, and we reviewed what we wondered Ms. Lirenman showed us the Magic School Bus Salmon movie.  She downloaded the movie from Discovery Educations.  She even showed us how we can find the movie.  As we watched the movie we stopped every so often to add our new knowledge to our Today's Meet.  Ms. Lirenman was impressed by what we were learning from the video.  We enjoyed the video.


Between recess and lunch we worked on a special salmon mosaic craft.  Unfortunately Ms. Lirenman forgot to take pictures of the mosaic salmon we created.  While we were working on our craft Ms. Lirenman was asking us what we knew about salmon. She wrote our thinking onto paper for us to use later.

After lunch we visited Mme Kell's classroom to watch the salmon fry get fed.  Ms. Lirenman was telling us that they will be moving to the salmon hatchery when we go on spring break.  It was nice to have a little visit with them before they move to their new home.


We then returned to the classroom to learn a bit more about Discovery Education.  Ms. Lirenman taught us how to log in, do a k-2 search, and find salmon images.  You see we are creating a special book (from our facts about salmon) and we want to add some great salmon pictures.  Discovery Education did not disappoint us at all.  Even though we are only six and seven we were able to search and find perfect images.



Our collaborative book has not been created yet but stay tuned.  If things go as planned it will be finished before we head off for our Spring Break.

If you're curious about what we wrote on Today's Meet today, check out the transcript.  You'll be impressed by how much we know about Salmon.
