Outdoor Recreation & Tourism - Grade 3
Third Grade students learn about Wyoming plants, wildlife, and recreation in this unit of six lessons. Students discover different plants, wildlife, and recreational activities common in our state as they discuss, read, and share information. A game of tag provides the opportunity to practice math skills as students experience a wildlife population control simulation. The concept of invasive species is introduced as students explore another type of relationship between plants, wildlife, and humans; and learn about careers responsible for the stewardship of these resources. Stewardship challenges are again considered as the unit wraps up with an engineering design challenge focused on either wildlife or invasive plants.
