This lesson plan from National Geographic was created as a resource for Geography Action 2001, which is based on the theme of rivers. By assembling a "river" from puzzle pieces, students will develop awareness of how people and wildlife use and depend on rivers; how actions within a river system can affect the entire system; and that people need to take action to maintain the vitality of river systems. The site also includes links to related National Geographic Web pages, teacher resources, US National Geography Standards, discussion questions, and extension activities. Join the National Geographic Society in protecting our greatest resource-the Earth-by "taking action" with hands-on conservation activities. Geography Action! starts each spring, and culminates during Geography Awareness Week, in November. Less
