Atlantic Salmon & Growth Chart Printable...

I am so excited to finally be posting on this awesome blog Erica created--thanks Erica!!

Each year, our class raises Atlantic salmon from eggs to the fry stage.

We study their growth, their predators and prey, reasons they have been endangered in the past, and more! Then, in April, we release them in the river. It's one of my students' most anticipated units of the year.

This year, I'm adding some new elements to our study and will be sharing the printables I create on here, in case anyone can use them as well. I'll be sure to keep them open-ended, since I know we all have different animals in our classrooms!

The file I created this evening is a growth chart, to record observations on the salmon in the coming months. Since they take awhile to develop, I plan to use this about once a week. Here's a preview of the file...

I'll be posting more about the salmon on my other blog as well, if you'd like to stop by. Thanks for reading! :)


  1. Thanks for sharing and great photographs!

  2. This is so totally cool! I love this post. Where did you get the eggs and how much? You just might have to guest post on my science blog!
