Why would I want to have Salmon in the Classroom?

  • What is the Salmon in the Classroom Program?This instrumental learning experience allows students the opportunity to raise, care for and maintain the salmon in their classroom from fall until spring. The program culminates at the end of the school year with the release of the young fish in a local watershed that feeds one of the Great Lakes. Students and teachers participate in a program to follow the life cycle of salmon from eggs, to hatchling to smolt, starting in the classroom.



  • All Participating Schools (a list and a map)Find a list and a map of other schools and teachers in the program. Listed by county so you can find a mentor that lives nearby to contact with your classroom specific questions!
