We Have Salmon Eggs!

Today after recess our 55 salmon eggs arrived from Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Here are some photos and a video of their arrival.  We are so excited to see what happens.

First she is inspecting our tank to see if we have set it up okay.

Our rocks for the Redd are good but we need to move them just a little bit.

Here we are learning the difference between living eggs and eggs that have died.  The living eggs are in the cup on the right side of the photo.

Here she is slowly getting ready for the eggs to be put into our tank.

Inside those tubes, we saw different stages of salmon development.  We are so excited to see how our eggs change over time.

When we were talking about eggs we learned a little bit about how they are different and similar to the eggs some of us eat.

And finally here's the video of our eggs being put into our salmon tank.

Check back often and we'll do our best to keep you up to date.

Wilderness Wednesday:Visiting our Trees in the Snow

Today for Wilderness Wednesday we went outside to check on our trees in the snow.  While we were there we noticed that some have scratches on them.  We think the scratches might be from a squirrel but we aren't sure yet.  We did see a squirrel though running across some trees.  Here are some photos of us standing by our trees.

Playing in the Snow

Today we spent our recess working on our gingerbread houses, so we got private recess after regular recess.  Here's what we got up to during our private recess.

The Christmas Concert

Last night we had our Christmas concert.  Many of us could come and we dressed in our finest.  How cute are we.

Then we went on the stage with Ms. Heacock's class.  This is how we looked.

Here is how we sounded.
