Students For Salmon!

Claire from Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association stopped by Monday to give 4th graders an introduction to the Students For Salmon program.

Did you know there are 5 types of Pacific Salmon?

We learned a fun way to remember them:

And we also learned the Salmon Life Cycle. Here is another fun way we learned to remember the stages:

Finally, we answered the REALLY important question: 

Why should we care about salmon?

Stay tuned to our blog to find out our answers.


  1. Dear 4th Graders,
    We should care about salmon because we need salmon. Animals, including us, eat different kinds of salmon. Some people have jobs like collecting salmon and without salmon they’d lose everything. I think we should make sure salmon stay alive.

  2. Dear 4th graders,
    Good job on the life cycle of salmon you really did well on team work, keep up the good work 4th graders!
