The trout eggs arrived at 11:05 am. Another school decided not to go through with the program, so I was given a second bag of eggs. It was estimated that each bag held about 300 eggs.
Since the eggs arrived at the end of fourth period, and we couldn't do anything with the eggs until they spent some time acclimating to the temperature of the fish tank, I invited eighth graders and sixth graders to help me with the eggs during lunch/recess.
Five students had a chance to pick out the dead eggs and count the good ones as they were placed into the egg basket. Students tallied the good and dead eggs as they were transferred from each bag.
The first bag had 14 dead eggs and 248 good eggs.
The second bag had 9 dead eggs and good 245 eggs.
