Invasives: Plants on the Move! Curriculum K-12


The lessons in this curriculum are designed to raise awareness and educate students about the invasive weed problem. By participating in handson activities, students will learn why invasive weeds are a problem, how to identify weeds, methods to prevent or minimize the introduction of weeds, how to conduct a weed inventory, and methods of controlling weeds. Students will have the opportunity to meet local land managers to learn about weed problems in their community and how they can help. Teaching students about the invasive weed problem in a classroom setting helps students learn important skills and concepts while developing a sense of responsibility and stewardship for the environment
