SITE OF THE MONTH FOR SEPTEMBER
TEACH Great Lakes: http://www.great-lakes.net/teach/
The Education And Curriculum Homesite (TEACH Great Lakes), a new
component of the Great Lakes Information Network, is a source for Great
Lakes-related educational materials for teachers, students and
interested citizens! Featuring topics on the environment, history and
culture, geography, pollution, and careers and business, current modules
include water levels, non-native invasive species, shoreline geology,
and ports and shipping. TEACH also features a Questions and Answers
section, where kids can submit questions about the Great Lakes to be
answered by the TEACH team. One question is featured each month, and all
answers are archived in the "Great Lakes Vault of Knowledge." TEACH is a
project of the Great Lakes Commission through a grant from the U.S.
EPA-Great Lakes National Program Office. Visit today and learn something
new about the Great Lakes!
