Environment: River of Life

Young scholars assess the impact of human activity on the environment. After reading the book, "A River Ran Wild," they role-play and discuss how people changed the river. Students write stories about living along a river from the point of view of different groups such as native Americans, colonists, industrialists, and environmentalists.

As a 'rookie' (first-year) teacher, time is really in short supply! Lesson Planet has given me lots of help making my lessons more engaging for all my students without spending time 'reinventing the wheel!'
