Age Range: 10-18 (Grades 5-12, with parental supervision)
Today’s website offers terrific information on an ecosystem that doesn’t get much attention – the Chaparral. The information is presented by “Living on Earth,” a weekly environmental news program distributed by Public Radio International.
When you get to the site you’ll see the title of the program, “Re-education At Camp Chaparral,” along with a link you can click on to listen to the broadcast – and you can follow along by reading the transcript that is posted on the page. The transcript is enhanced with photographs of the chaparral. It provides a fascinating introduction to the chaparral ecosystem along with a link to further resources about it.
Once you’ve learned about the chaparral, browse the Living on Earth archives by date (dating from 1991 to present) or search for a particular story or topic such as:
- Climate Change
- Renewable Energy
- Polar Bears
- Organic Fish Farming
- Rachel Carson
- ~and much, much more!
This is a terrific resource for enhancing one’s knowledge of science and how it applies to the world we live in.
