Today we visited our fishing vest exhibit in the Besser Museum in Alpena. Every year my class does a Great Lakes Species Research Report and we make fishing vests to display them. The students must also choose some activities to do that go with their fishing vests. For example, fish poems, fishy jokes, fish tall tales about how the big one got away, a list of fishing terms and definitions, etc. A couple of years ago I was asked if I wanted to display some of the students’ fishing vests in the Besser Museum. Finally, today we were able to view the exhibit. Great display, Besser Museum! I will post the rubric I use for the Great Lakes Species Research Reports soon.
