Herons, Frogs, and Cranberry Bogs: A Wetlands Unit for Science and Language Arts.
Pottle, Jean L.
This book presents interesting lessons about freshwater and saltwater wetlands, the creatures that inhabit them, and individuals who have played an important role in saving them. Activities in this book give students a chance to do their own research, perform experiments, use field guides, and work with maps and diagrams. Students are asked to keep a journal to record new information, first-hand observations, opinions, and creative ideas. They investigate their neighborhoods to find a wetland, explore it, and share their findings with the class. The activities in this book are divided into six sections: Bogs, Marshes, Prairie Potholes, Swamps, Estuaries, and Tidal Marshes. Evaluation instruments are also included. (JRH)
