review:
This 69-page booklet is the first unit in a three unit series on Lake Erie for children in elementary school. The unit includes general information about Lake Erie (origin, uses, size, geography, geology, economic importance, pollution), maps of the region, and an experiment that demonstrates the effects of glaciers on landscapes. Fairly simple, interdisciplinary activities are linked to basic facts about the lake and fish. The booklet contains activities for teaching and reinforcing information about the Lake Erie region and attitudes toward Lake Erie. Activities include games, map work, writing activities, constructing a word web, and art activities. The booklet also contains 1) a list of 46 books on ships and boats, Ohio, rivers, fish, food, animals, water pollution, erosion, and ecology; 2) a list of 62 songs about bodies of water, fish, fishing, pollution, ships and sailing; 3) a list of ten musical recordings; and a poster for a bulletin board.
