Url: http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2005/03/08/who-gives-a-hoot/
Creator: Chan, Priscilla
Publisher: New York Times Company
Description: This one-hour lesson plan authored by Priscilla Chan, of The New York Times Learning Network, and Bridget Anderson, of The Bank Street College of Education in New York City invites middle and high school students to "consider an unusually large wave of owl migration and its various impacts on the environment and food chain." The lesson is based on a brief March 8, 2005 article, describing a peculiar influx of great gray, hawk, and boreal owls into Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. The website includes a lesson description; academic content standards; and concise sections that address objectives, needed materials, extension and interdisciplinary activities, and evaluation.
