Goin' Fishin'

It seems late in the season to be going fishing, but it is early for us! If we waited any longer we'd be ice fishing!
Today, the students learned about the difference between male and female brook trout.  Like  birds, the male brook trout have showier features including a broad jaw and colorful belly.
The pictures below are showing the students sketching a male or female brook trout.  More to come soon!

We are headed to the New Hampton Fish Hatchery on Friday, November 16, 2013.
