Bison Gone: Appreciating Natural Resources

They conduct a demonstration using beans to demonstrate the difference between the number of bison before and after the arrival of the Europeans, and discuss current natural resources that are over-harvested.

As a middle school teacher and coach, I have very little spare time. This year, I was asked to teach 2 subjects (one of which I have never taught). Lesson Planet has helped me become more prepared without having to spend hours on the internet searching for ideas. Almost everything I need can now be found with one click of the mouse!
