review:
This 182-page activity guide focuses on Lake Superior and its watershed. The material covers topics ranging from physical evolution to current human impact concerns, and is organized into four sections: the physical Lake Superior, the living Lake Superior, the cultural Lake Superior, and a synthesis section. Each of the first three sections has a fairly detailed background section, and additional background is provided with each activity. A very detailed "how to" guide for field trips is also provided.
