Lil Bobbers Take to Muskego Park
Class teaches toddlers and preschoolers about fishing and much more than meets the eye.
Pardon the pun, but while 'trolling' through YouTube, Patch found this great video of young anglers and their parents at Muskego Park learning about fishing and much more through the "Lil Bobbers" program offered through the Muskego Parks and Recreation department.
An organization called Hooked Up 101 teaches the class, which is only in part a fishing lesson. Kids ages 3-5 years old also learn to develop their vocabulary and imagination through fish stories and fish identification, according to the organization's website.
A small class size offers little tykes the opportunity to grow social and emotional skills through sharing, turn-taking, cooperation, and successfully following directions and patterns. Fishing, as it turns out, can also teach kids about numbers, colors, textures and more.
Additional programs are offered through Hooked Up 101 for older children as well in order for them to develop fishing skills as well as problem-solving skills and a respect for the environment.
