Eggs to Adults

Description

Did you think hatching was just for chicks? Not a chance! From fish eggs to adults, we explore what condition the fish needs to survive. See how groundwater does its part to provide water to fish spawning in nature. 

One at a time the students will receive a fishing pole with a magnet on the end of the line. By dipping the “hook” of their fishing rod into an imaginary pond (trash bin) they will “catch” a question. Student’s  take turns fishing out questions and discussing the answers with the group. 

Expectations

Life Systems, Grade 2 (Growth and Changes in Animals)

Animals have distinct characteristics.
Humans are animals.
There are similarities and differences among different kinds of animals.
Humans need to protect animals and the places where they live.

  1. assess ways in which animals have an impact on society and the environment, and ways in which humans have an impact upon animals and the places where they live;
  2. investigate similarities and differences in the characteristics of various animals;
  3. demonstrate an understanding that animals grow and change and have distinct characteristics

Life Systems, Grade 4 (Habitats and Communities)

Plants and animals are interdependent and are adapted to meet their needs from the resources available in their particular habitats.
Changes to habitats (whether by nature or human means) can affect plants and animals and the relationship between them.
Society relies on plants and animals

  1. analyse the effects of human activities on habitats and communities;
  2. investigate the interdependence of plants and animals within specific habitats and communities;
  3. demonstrate an understanding of habitats and communities and the relationship among the plants and animals that live in them

Life Systems, Grade 6 (Diversity of Living Things)

  • investigate classification systems and some of the processes of life common to all animals (e.g., growth, reproduction, movement, response, and adaptation)
