Lake Pollution in the Yahara Watershed.
Madison Public Schools, WI.
Audio-visual media are utilized in this teacher's guide for an interdisciplinary unit in the middle grades. A filmstrip is employed to increase the student's understanding of how pollution problems develop, and some of the steps necessary in working out solutions, as interpretation of historical changes, scientific analysis, and government involvement. The filmstrip is explained in its entirety, illustrating each frame and its accompanying script. Annotated bibliographic notations for teachers are included and divided into three parts: (1) rainfall, hydrologic cycle, and watersheds, (2) fresh water ecology, wetland plants and animals, natural succession in lakes, and marshes, and (3) effects of man-pollution, pesticides, and cultural eutrophication. Resource materials concerning Lake Mendota are also listed. The information is suitable for use in connection with science units on fresh water biology or water pollution and for social studies units related to effects of urbanization or to evaluating the effectiveness of governmental units in handling environmental problems. Filmstrip not included. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
