Fifth graders traveled to Chadron State Park to participate in the Trout in the Classroom field trip. We first learned the basics of baiting and casting a line, and then tried out our skills. Many of the students are experienced fishers, while others were first-timers. We only caught two trout, but there’s never a bad day of fishing, right? Next, we said goodbye to our trout and released them into the pond. We then collected macro invertebrates from the pond and identified the various organisms from damselfly nymphs to snails to determine the water quality of the pond. Finally, we went on a little nature walk along the creek before having lunch and heading home.
