Hey all,

We are studying crayfish right now. I have some of the little critters in my room. This is the second time in my 12 years of teaching third that I've had them. I think it's the last. I do not enjoy it.

That said, I'd like to show some videos of crayfish to my kiddos. Anybody have any tried and true videos about crayfish and their life cycles?

Thanks!
TARDIS

Hey TARDIS - I've never done crayfish. I've done salmon but not crayfish. Why crayfish?

We had crayfish several times when I taught third and they were, um, interesting. We struggled to keep them alive after molting and we struggled with unexpected mating behaviors in front of the kiddos. We did have one round of success with baby crayfish, but I agree, it was not enjoyable.

Good luck!

Teachwonder, we are doing them because it's a FOSS kit: structures of life. My team created a storyline that goes along with the kit. im hoping my district follows through and abopts a new science program next year. Regardless, I won't have the crawdads. I just think it's cruel.

You Tube? I am sure there are some that would be helpful.
