Note: Images in book are very clear and sharper than the previews shown. Thanks!
Learning comes to life when you make local connections. Illinois will surprise you. The Prairie State has 1,000 year-old trees, more than 300 caves and insect-eating plants. Textbook examples of generic food chains, animal classification and habitat will suffice – but substituting plants and animals from Illinois habitats makes them better. Illinois Forest and Woodlands is all about making those substitutions.
I’ll pay the shipping on this 100-page reproducible, spiral bound resource. It features the best of Illinois’ forest and woodland habitat. You’ll find details on trees, wildflowers, birds, reptiles, mammals, amphibians, etc.
• Over 80 reproducible illustrations students can color (and use in oral presentations or for bulletin boards)
• Information cards full of facts for each plant and animal (use to create food chains and for classification)
• Suggestions for educational activities, including a giant Illinois food web activity.
• Illinois Fast Facts (statistics) and links to scientific data on Illinois habitats.
• Illinois internet sites
If knowing Illinois had giant sycamores 16 feet in diameter doesn’t catch a kid’s attention, then our hickory horned devil, a lime green caterpillar the size of a hot dog, might!
Thanks for looking. Teach Illinois!
