Fishing Regulations and Sportsmanship

Students participate in a scavenger hunt for answers to questions derived from the Minnesota fishing regulations booklet. They explore how fishing regulations are laws that help maintain healthy fish populations and aquatic natural resources. Personal responsibility and choices made by citizens involving unwritten rules of sportsmanship also play a role in managing our state’s resources. Students act out a short skit in response to a situation card that poses a fishing dilemma. They use the regulations booklet to defend or explain their choices and actions, then decide whether their decision was based on regulations or good sportsmanship.
