Everglades Mountains & Valleys Lesson Plan Contest
Calling all teachers!
What is the Everglades Mountains and Valleys habitat video series?
Everglades Environmental Education has developed a video series introducing students to 7 habitats of the Everglades Ecosystem-Tropical Hardwood Hammock, Pine Rockland, Sawgrass Prarie, Cypress Dome, Slough, Mangrove, and Florida Bay. The series is designed as a supplemental teaching aid for teachers covering the Everglades ecosystem in their classroom or school groups preparing to come on an Everglades field trip.
What is the contest?
The goal is for teachers to be able to use the video series and supplemental lesson plans together.
How to participate?
Send us a lesson plan for one or more of the habitats in the video series. Please indicate which grade level and habitat video your lesson plan supports. Please only use our lesson plan templete. Click here to download the lesson plan template.

Female alligators will vehemently protect their nests and their young until they reach one to two years of age. Keep your eyes out for baby alligators in the Everglades - they're about a foot long with yellow stripes.
