Outdoor Hour Challenge- Summer Fish Study

It’s the time of year in our family where we’re spending a lot of time at the lake and the river with poles in hand, chasing the elusive fish dinner. In the process, we catch and release a lot of smaller and quite beautiful fish. This is a perfect opportunity to learn more about fish and their place in our habitat as part of this week’s Outdoor Hour Challenge for summer fish.

In complete honesty, I hate to touch a fish but I’m still in awe of their colors and variety enough to watch my husband handle the fish. Hopefully in your family you have someone who is a fisherman and would be willing to let you observe their catch closely.

Make sure to go to the original challenge linked below and watch the YouTube videos there. Read the lessons in the Handbook of Nature Study and then get outside to go find a fish to see in real life!
