Title: PBS-American Field Guide: Teacher Resources-Non Native Species: English Ivy-Landscape Plant or Deadl PDF
Url: http://www.pbs.org/americanfieldguide/teachers/non_native/non_native_...
Publisher: Public Broadcasting Service (U.S.)
Description: Very little of the world today can be called truly representative of the native ecosystem it was meant to be. In this lesson plan, students are challenged to consider the ramifications of introducing a non-native plant species, English Ivy, into an area and how this affects the overall health of that area's ecosystem. The site includes two activities -- one in which students use photos and grids to measure habitat diversity and a second whereby students examine how and why diversity is a good thing, ecologically speaking. Designed for grades 9-12, this site includes all of the necessary resources needed to implement these activities immediately.
