Designed by Debbie Valerio, TIC teacher, for the NYC and NYC Watersheds Trout in the Classroom program.
To practice measurement skills for math and science
Scientists are often catching and measuring trout in streams, to see what fish are living where.
- A ruler
- Trout of varying sizes saved in test tubes
- Rubbing alcohol
- Draw an enlarged, color picture of one of the trout from our tank.
- Measure 3 different trout in test tubes. Write the letter of the test tube and measurement both in inches and centimeters on a list.
- Using only the metric measurement, list the trout in order from largest to smallest.
Find other objects of the same size in the classroom, find the mass of the trout, order them by size
