Wetlands & Wildlife: Alaska Wildlife Curriculum Teacher Information Manual, Parts I-II.
Sigman, Marilyn; And Others
This document consists of a teacher manual and a set of information cards. The teacher manual is designed to educate Alaskan students about the important functions of Alaska's wetlands and about the fish and wildlife that live there. Part I of the manual explores Alaska's wetland habitats, the plants and animals that live there, and the relationships between human activities and wetlands as ecosystems. The appendices include a description of wetland types that may be found in some habitat complexes, animal adaptations for living in wetlands, and a reference list. Part II focuses on bird species which are Alaskan summer residents and includes aspects of individual bird species and bird population dynamics. Year-round habitats of migratory birds are discussed in addition to detailed accounts of six species and two sub-species of migratory birds that nest in Alaska. Also discussed is conservation of migratory birds. The appendices include information on bird migration, laws concerning wetlands and migratory birds, and a reference list. These materials contain illustrations and maps. The wetland cards contain over 100 illustrations of plants, invertebrates, fish, birds, and mammals found in Alaska's wetlands. Each illustration is accompanied by text describing the organism's traits, habitats, food habitats, and what eats it. (LP)
