This kit was developed by the Illinois Department of Conservation's Education Program with assistance from the State Board of Education, as a teaching tool which can be used to promote conservation awareness of young people. It is designed to enable educators to help students in grades 7-10 learn about Illinois' renewable natural resources through a variety of approaches including student lessons, a videotape, full-color posters, stand-alone activities, and a supplemental learning unit. Materials can correlate with current activities and assist in meeting State goals for Learning in several of the fundamental learning areas. Topics covered in the lesson plans include: natural resources; ecosystems; management of natural resources; values and principles; conflicts, resolutions, and planning; legislation and enforcement; species management; habitat management; and taking action. Activities include: construction of an aquarium or terrarium, censuses and estimates, resolving problems, values and principles, environmental assessment, turkey trouble, a prairie web of life, topographic maps, taking a survey, and American conservationists. Student and teachers' guides to an educational simulation game are included. (JRH)
