  • The Great Clearcut Controversy
    Skye M. Greenler and Michael R. Saunders – FNR-549W – Free download
    In this inquiry-based teaching unit, students use real scientific data to investigate how a bird community and individual forest animals respond to a clearcut timber harvest. In this investigation, students: use scientific inquiry to gain knowledge and answer questions; apply that knowledge to the engineering design process; and design a viable management solution given the constraints and tradeoffs they discover. The unit includes three lessons and supplementary materials. (Target Audience: Middle School (grades 6 to 8) science or environmental science classroom)
