We teach Angler Education at Hutsell Elementary and certify our 4th grade students as Jr. Anglers while partnered with Texas Parks and Wildlife. During our Angler Ed. unit students learn fish identification, fish anatomy, fish handling, knot tying, tackle box assembly, aquatic conservation, safety, rules and regulations, and casting. Students are required to identify three fish species, identify 5 different parts of a fish body. Students also need to learn and demonstrate how to tye 2 different angler knots and describe what goes into a tackle box and what each function is for the tackle. We also teach students about aquatic conservation and they need descirbe what they would do in different scenarios ethically. We also discuss fishing pole safety and different parts of the pole. Students learn to cast safely in a controlled manner to prevent the potential for injuries to happen. We also require that students identify 5 rules and regulations and tell why they think the rule is in place. At the end of our unit, we take the kids on a mock fishing trip using plastic fish called backyard bass. After students demonstrate that they are successful in each objective, we certify them as jr anglers.
