What is a mangrove?
Students will be able to explain how red mangroves islands are formed and why they are beneficial, and will be able to name at least three species of wildlife that are associated with the red mangrove.
Our "Everglades ABCs - Activity Guide for Grades K-3" is broken up into 9 sections with materials in each section. The activities take 30 to 45 minutes to complete, and are targeted mainly at kindergarten to third grade students. A class doesn't have to complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another and are better done in sequence. However, each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources.
Incorporate the Everglades into your lesson planning. In partnership with teachers, we are proud to offer multidisciplinary, curriculum-based activities that bring relevant lessons from the field into the classroom. These materials can be used as pre-site lessons for any in-park field trip. Please click here to view a list of Everglades Curriculum Materials.
