Find out what we can do to help salmon from becoming endangered.
Are you doing your part to save the salmon?
Salmon can't protect their homes so they need your help to keep their streams and their homes free of pollution. RESPECT salmon habitat by being RESPONSIBLE for things that may pollute the water. REDUCE the amount of water you use when brushing your teeth or taking a shower. If we all work together we can help make a difference.
Time: 50 minutes
Where have all the salmon gone? During this lesson about salmon and water quality, students hypothesize reasons for the decline in salmon populations, play a game about the salmon life cycle and brainstorm ways to help save the threatened and endangered fish. While playing the game, students encounter factors that are critical to salmon survival. After the game, students express actions they can take to help salmon survive and thrive.
