Boom and Bust in the Ozark Forests

Here is a hard-hitting, cross-curricular lesson on the effects that the deforestation of the Ozark forests in the 19th century had on the people, animals, and ecosystems of the area. The Dr. Seuss book The Lorax is used as a way of comparing what happened in that story to what actually happened in the Ozarks. A very good, and important, lesson.
