I went fishing up until a few days before I had my daughter. Ask for a mask and a window open to help with the smell.
I personally would not do it at all I work in a pub and I won't go near the raw fish in the kitchen cos I carnt stand the smell no no no no u had guts to stay in class today I wouldn't and couldn't of done it. I'd say put you in a room and you can read about it instead of taking part in it.
Fresh fish doesn't smell nearly as bad as market sold fish. I would just ask for a mask and be near a window like kennimae said.
You can ask the teacher if you could sit out from the activity im sure she will understand just explain to her
Wear gloves and a face mask. Fishing is not harmful at all. I do it as often as I can.
I'm 16 & I'm still in school. I have a hard time doing alot at school, if your really uncomfortable see if you can do an alternative assignment. Good luck: )
We have a male teacher. He and the rest of the class(who are mostly guys) all told me to suck it up. My stomach pushes on the table and is discomforting. I have always hated the smell of fish it is so gross. The lake that we have to fish at for school smells and is so nasty. I can't get a note for it and my teachers are not supportive of my pregnancy they all frown upon me... and since me and the dad split up they are all very rude about it.
