Big Arky, A Real Arkansas Monster
Middle schoolers examine the world of the Arkansas alligator and topics that are related to wetland environments. They pay attention to the relationship between geography, climate, environment, and the animals who live there. A role-play scenario is set up where groups of learners must assess the impacts of the construction of an industrial plant on a nearby wetland. This fine lesson is well worth taking a look at and considering for implementation with any class, not just those in Arkansas!
