Lesson Plans

Many teachers have taught many concepts involving trout.  Trout can be the focus of a lesson, an illustration of a concept, or just inspiration.  Having trout in your classroom inspires students to think more broadly about everyday topics and skills.  While there are some comprehensive trout lesson guides written, most teachers find it helpful to tailor lessons to their specific curricular requirements and tie in trout as appropriate for their classrooms.
