Abbey Lane Students Are Crazy For Crayfish

November 02, 2017

Abbey Lane Students Are Crazy For Crayfish 001Fifth-graders at Abbey Lane Elementary School participated in their annual crayfish races on Oct. 25 as a fun culminating activity to their invertebrates and crayfish unit.

Since the start of the school year, students studied, fed and observed live crayfish in their classrooms. They made observations about how crayfish breathe, see and hear and studied their parts.

To end the unit on a positive note, classes assembled in the gymnasium where they were placed into teams for a bracket competition on how fast their crayfish could move. Each team sat by a bullseye on the floor, picked up their crayfish and placed it in the center. The winning crayfish was the first to get out of the circle.

The energy in the room ran high as several rounds took place. Students cheered on their crayfish to make it out of the center of the bullseye the fastest. Fifth-graders Grace Bertram, Ariel Fierro, EmreOnbasi and MayurPande were ultimately named the 2017 champions.
