Fish Biologist Rachel Little Visits Lewis & Clark Elementary Today
RICHLAND, Wash - Students at Lewis and Clark Elementary School in Richland got an up close look today at what lies beneath the water of the Columbia river.
Special guest visitor, Fish Biologist Rachel little dissected a couple of hatchery raised salmon fish in order to show the students the internal organs of both the male and female fish.
"I think it's amazing that fish have teeth on their tongues. I mean, I never knew that sort of stuff." said Alex Bittinger, a student in Mrs. Madison's class.
"They're showing us all the organs...it's just we're learning so much about salmon." Said student Daniel Dohnalek.
Little and her assistant visited Deborah Madison's class as well as other classes today. They answered questions and explained the fishes "parts and purposes" as part of the "salmon in the class room" curriculum.
