In this hands-on unit for the study of soils, students will learn about land forms, geology, biology, and the physical process of weathering, sedimentation and capillarity of soil. The connection between soil conservation/degradation and agriculture is explored, clearly demonstrating the importance of soil to the production of food.
Endangered Animals is an environmental studies unit based on four children’s books by Canadian author Victoira Miles. Each book gives a glimpse into the daily life of a baby animal – the sea otter pup, the spotted owlet, the bald eaglet, and the cougar kitten. This 94-page unit includes everything a teacher will need to teach an endangered animals unit, including activities to introduce students to the theme, detailed lesson plans for each of the student books, activities integrating the unit across the curriculum, assessment strategies and tools, and reproducible blackline masters.
