America's Wild Horses. Five Day Lesson Plan and Workbook--4th Grade. Legend.
Weeks, Arlene E.
This document contains a teaching guide and a children's activity book about the wild horses and burros living on Nevada public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). In 1971 Congress passed legislation to protect, manage, and control wild horses and burros on public lands. The BLM maintains 270 herd management areas in 10 states. As part of its efforts to maintain a thriving ecological balance in these areas, the BLM offers excess horses and burros to the public for "adoption." The teacher's guide contains a fact sheet on wild horses and burros and adoption procedures; a glossary; and five lesson plans covering awareness of wild horses and burros and their origin, terminology concerning wild horses and burros and their natural environment, ecological facts, art activities, and learning activities. Student materials, aimed at approximately the 4th grade level, is a coloring book with text that includes word puzzles and drawings that illustrate parts of the horse and Indian markings used on prize war horses. This document contains numerous pictures. (SV)
