Habitats of North Dakota (for K-12 Educators)
Habitats of North Dakota materials were developed to promote teaching and learning about wildlife conservation and resource management. These five Habitats of North Dakota texts include Wetlands, Prairie, Badlands, Woodlands and Riparian. Each of the texts is illustrated and greatly enhanced with color photographs provided by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.
Comprehension and critical thinking questions are incorporated throughout each of the five texts, and each unit also includes vocabulary and reference sections.
A Teacher Resource Guide is also available to accompany the five Habitats of North Dakota and includes a variety of worksheets, assessments, maps, illustrations, and other suggested activities for the units.
