Welcome to the world!  Here's one of our very own brook trout from our aquatic nursery.  We looked at this specimen under the Ken-A-Vision microscope today.  This trout is in the alevin stage.  An alevin carries around a sac full of nutrients.  When all of the nutrients are absorbed, the trout will "swim up."  Swimming up is when the trout are looking for REAL food!

We have trout hatching!  Today we observed four trout to of whom have hatched out of their egg! Ask your son/daughter about it today.
Here's a picture of an alevin taken from Henretta Science

Starting tomorrow, your child will be able to check out a Playaway from our school library.  Here's how to use the Playaway:
