3rd Grade
Genesee Community Charter School
Rochester, NY

As part of a learning expedition about the Genesee River biome, 3rd grade students created a professional-quality non-fiction children’s book documenting the life of Seth Green, local hero who pioneered national use of fish hatcheries. The full expedition included a case study of the life cycle of salmon and trout; raising salmon fry in the classroom for re-stocking the population; and water quality testing at outdoor research sites.

The book includes information about the life of Seth Green, in text and painted illustrations. Student research was based in primary and secondary source texts, as well as gleaned from fieldwork with local historians and scientists at museums, labs and hatcheries.

The book was glue-bound in the school’s publication center, and has been purchased by elementary schools across the country.
