Outdoor Recreation & Tourism - Grade 5
Fifth Grade students meet real-life stewards of Wyoming’s outdoor recreation and tourism in this unit of seven lessons. As students try to solve the puzzle of the “Mystery Steward,” they are introduced to nine different individuals and organizations who are stewards of Wyoming. Students learn about who owns and manages Wyoming lands, different stewardship challenges facing that management, and how stewardship decisions are made throughout the lessons. Close reading and observation during videos help students understand that good stewardship can take many forms. In the final lesson, students demonstrate their understanding of stewardship as they identify themselves as the “Mystery Steward” and write a paragraph describing their stewardship decision based on a chosen scenario.
