Muncie Sanitary District- Life in the White River ‘Stay at Home’ Learning Lessons Pt. 5

#LifeInTheWhiteRiver is colorful with Rainbow Darter. These darters are known for their bright and vibrantly colored males. Believe it or not, the females will actively seek the brightest colored male Rainbow Darters to reproduce with. The red, orange and blue colored fins are on full display during the breeding season

At-home activity for the kids:

Bring the White River to life in this color-by-number activity! Children use a key to match each number with a corresponding color — revealing a Rainbow Darter! This activity is perfect for both math and animal enthusiasts.

Send us photos of the color by number your kids created for a chance to be featured on our page!
