Bosque Education Guide Teacher Professional Development

Description: 

The Bosque Education Guide is an interdisciplinary curriculum about the Middle Rio Grande Valley ecosystem. The curriculum provides classroom-based and field activities for students grades K-12. For the central activity, students construct a model of the Middle Rio Grande and then manipulate the paper and cloth pieces to demonstrate human impacts over the last two hundred years. Later, they “restore” the ecosystem. More information about the curriculum and some downloadable materials are available on the website, http://nmnaturalhistory.org/bosque-education-guide.html
