Gifts from Land and Water

This Gifts from Land and Water lesson plan also includes:

With a series of fun hands-on simulations, young children can learn about conservation and natural resources. Your learners become land detectives, discussing and investigating the gifts that the land and water provide them. They then pretend to go fishing using paper water, paper fish, a stick, and string fishing poles. They learn to throw little fish back and use the fish they keep to discuss food distribution and conservation of aquatic resources.
