Predators and Prey: Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. An Environmental Education Learning Experience Designed for Grades K-3.
Boswell, Henry, III; Stamm, Daniel K.
This document provides hands-on environmental education activities for the classroom and the outdoor setting of Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. The activity packet, designed for grades K-3, meets curriculum objectives of the standard course of study established by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. It includes on-site activities conducted at the park and previsit and postvisit activities designed for the classroom. These activities may be performed independently or in a series to build upon students' newly gained knowledge and experiences. In these activities students go on a "safari," become part of a food chain, and discover the roles of predator and prey at Jordan Lake. The learning experiences expose students to the major concepts of predator, food chain, prey, habitat, adaptation, resource management, and preservation of natural areas. Vocabulary words appear in bold type the first time they are used in each activity. These words and their definitions may be found in the glossary at the back of the activity packet, followed by a list of reference materials. A supplemental educator's guide provides information about the field trip to Jordan Lake. (Contains 16 references.) (KS)
