Alaska's Forests...More Than Just Trees. Alaska Wildlife Week April 20-25, 1987. Primary Teacher's Guide, Unit 5.
Alaska State Dept. of Fish and Game, Fairbanks.
This document is the fifth educational packet in the Alaska Wildlife Week Series. This unit emphasizes forest wildlife, ecology, and conservation and includes: a teacher's guide with information, interdisciplinary activities, games, and worksheets; a wildlife poster; forest wildlife cards with illustrations and text describing over 100 organisms that live in Alaska's forest; a forest learning trail with guidelines for setting up a nature trail in a forested site near schools in Alaska; and a forest game for review and reinforcement of the concepts and vocabulary. The material is organized so that each of the five lessons builds upon those previous. An introductory activity is suggested for each lesson to be used along with any of the wide variety of the activities for curriculum integration that are provided. This thematic teaching approach integrates science, language arts, social studies, math, art, and other subjects. The worksheets may be used to review, reinforce, or evaluate student understanding of the lessons. (CW)
