All About Fish (Grades 1 - 5 educators)

August 17, 2020
DESCRIPTION: Fish in the Hudson may share a watery habitat, but aside from that, fish can vary in every way imaginable. They are uniquely adapted to their niche in the ecosystem. Learn how different adaptations benefit different species and expand your love of these charismatic little vertebrates as we do different fish activities and we learn all about fish. (Note that while we are focusing on the Hudson, but this fish activity applies more widely).

Presenters: Margie Turrin, Director of Educational Field Programs, and Laurel Zaima, Education and Outreach Coordinator, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University.

Target Audience: Grades 1-5 educators
