Natural Resources: Close to Home

by: Stephanie Andersen

Learning about endangered or threatened species can be an extension of an adaptation or biodiversity lesson. It can also be tied into conversation and what students (and the rest of us) can do to help species in need. Before your students head outdoors, they should be aware of the habitats and species around them. Use the Internet resources featured in this month’s column to increase students’ awareness and stimulate their thinking about how they can help endangered and threatened species close to home.
