In this fish life lesson, students create a proper habitat in a fish tank for the trout eggs to spawn and thrive for several weeks. Learners record their observations and practice using fish related vocabulary before releasing the trout back into the wild.
Learners investigate the important components for a healthy trout habitat. In this fish habitat lesson, students discuss how the aquarium will simulate a trout's environment in nature. Learners complete a trout information sheet to set the aquarium up similar to the trout habitat.
