        Florida's Everglades: The River of Grass

        In this blended lesson supporting literacy skills, students learn how the physical conditions of the Everglades, a set of ecosystems in southern Florida, support a wide variety of life. They also learn about the effects that changing conditions can have on this unique environment and its inhabitants. Students develop their literacy skills through a science focus on how physical conditions, living things, and habitats are connected. During this process, they read informational text, learn and practice vocabulary words, and explore content through a video and interactive activities. This resource is part of the Inspiring Middle School Literacy Collection.
