The Illinois Natural Heritage Conservation Education Kit V. [Ecology and Management of Special Habitats: Dune, Cave, Cliff, Bluff, and Urban.]
Stone, Sally F.
The ecology and management of special habitats is the theme of this instructional guide. It contains 24 activities designed to help teachers familiarize their students with dune, cave, cliff, bluff, and urban habitats in Illinois. Each activity (which is ready to be copied and given to students) includes an objective (called a mission) and instructions which speak directly to the student. Although the activities are best suited for students in grades 4-8, certain activities are appropriate for students in kindergarten to third grade and for students in grades 9-12. Background information for teachers is provided, including brief comments on adapting exercises for students in primary and high school grades and special instructions for the activities. (JN)
