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 plan is well worth taking a look at and considering for implementation with any class, not just those in Arkansas!

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
