Keepers of the Prairie

Young ecologists examine the case of the prairie dog, and their near extinction. They read a terrific student handout embedded in the plan, and engage in a class discussion that's based on what they read. Learners perform research on people who work as wildlife biologists, and they begin to understand how the scientists study and assist species of animals that have become threatened and/or endangered. A thought-provoking, and interesting lesson!
