"Going, Going, Gone" Don't Let It Loose: 5-8th Grade
OverviewThe students will be able to define the terms native, alien, endangered and extinct; explain the impact of exotic vegetation to natural communities; name at least three native and three exotic species found in South Florida.
Our "Don't let it Loose" unit is broken into seven lesson plans, each taking 45 minutes to 4 classroom periods to complete, and targeted primarily at middle school students. A class needn't complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another. However, each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources.
