Learn how to use local stream restoration projects as an opportunity to engage students in evaluating the impacts of humans on ecosystems and communities. This session will provide participants with a hands-on introduction to activities designed to teach students about the social, economic, historical, and biological impacts of humans on river systems using the Grand River Rapids Restoration as a case study. Participants will receive access to three full place-based curricular units aligned to NGSS, Social Studies, and ELA standards. Presenters will share how these units can be customized to local ecosystems.

Curriculum is available online at https://www.gvsu.edu/groundswell/lesson-plans-54.htm and on PBS Learning Media, where you can import directly into Google Classroom, at https://wgvu.pbslearningmedia.org/collection/river-re-wilding-evaluating-impacts-on-ecosystems-and-communities/
