The materials in this educational packet are designed for use with students in grades 4 through 7. They consist of an overview, three lesson plans and student data sheets, and a poster. The overview presents the history, causes, and present state of species endangerment and a review of legislation by Congress designed to protect threatened or endangered plants and animals. A glossary and list of reference materials are included. The lesson plans provide a list of learning outcomes, instructional strategies, a list of materials needed, and a quiz (with answers). The activities in the lessons focus on: (1) critical habitats and habitat protection; (2) a community's role in addressing the problems of protecting an endangered species; and (3) the threatened and endangered species in the student's particular state. The poster presents a composite photograph of the hawksbill sea turtle, showing how it is threatened by destruction of nesting beaches and by trade in ornaments made from its shell. An additional crossword puzzle activity is provided on a separate "student page". (JN)
