Salmon at Carkeek Park!

Our Pre-K Program got to experience nature and science as they explored local Carkeek Park this past week to see the returning salmon. Teacher Erin took the kids on a walk around the park to learn first hand about the habitat and life cycle of the salmon.

Continuing the in class learning, we pretended to be raindrops rolling down the hill to join Pipers Creek. We enacted the salmon life cycle and created salmon life cycle bead necklaces. We saw salmon working their way up the creek to spawn. We saw salmon whose lifetime had ended and learned about how they create food and nutrients for plants and animals.

Our salmon expedition included time on the salmon slide and a story time before heading home. We are looking forward to more adventures at Carkeek Park!

Our class is grateful to have environmental education so close to home. Thank you to Teacher Erin for developing fantastic experiences!
