Lakeville is a multi-disciplinary unit about ecosystems, natural resource management (i.e., invasive species), and civic responsibility. The activities can be presented in sequence for flow and reinforcement of subject matter or as stand-alone sessions. Each session is designed to encourage critical thinking while enhancing students’ environmental knowledge. Sessions 1 and 2 provide students with background information (if needed) and Session 3 brings it all together in a fun game-show style activity that gives students a chance to use their persuasive debate skills and make management decisions about a local freshwater habitat. The goal is to prepare students for their role as future citizens and environmental stewards.
