Prairie Restoration for Wisconsin Schools.
Murray, Molly Fifield; Greenler, Robin McC.
This packet is composed of several resources for teachers interested in prairie ecology and restoration. "A Guide to Restoration from Site Analysis to Management" focuses on the Prairie/Oak Savanna communities of Wisconsin and takes teachers through the planning and design process for a restoration project on school grounds including site analysis, biotic community selection, species selection, site preparation, plant or seed procurement, planting, post-planting care, and long-term management. The Prairie Activity Guide is a sampler of activities that can be used to embark on a prairie restoration. Activities can be used with K-12 students and cover subjects such as science, mathematics, language arts, social studies, art, and music. Activities are organized into seven units: (1)"Prairie Definition and Introduction"; (2) "Human Habitation and Cultural History"; (3) "Prairie Plants"; (4) "Prairie Insects, Birds and Mammals"; (5) "Ecosystem Interactions"; (6) "Restoration"; and (7) "Integrative Activities and General Strategies." Other items in the packet include a Scope and Sequence pamphlet which categorizes activities according to grade level and subject, plant species lists and range maps, propagation guidelines, seed-collecting dates, bibliographies, resources lists, and a native plant nursery list.
