Fires and the Prairie (Field Trip)

Students visit the Konza Prairie and observe different plots. They fill in the accompanying field guide. Students describe the condition of plots that are burned every year, every four years, and not burned at all. They compare the plots, estimating the percent composition of different types of plants. Students key out a flower using a taxonomic key.

Lesson Planet has been nothing short of amazing! Lesson Planet is a part of my weekly lesson planning regimen. I teach my children the importance of collaboration and I think Lesson Planet is an excellent example of how collaboration can help improve ones learning.
