Lesson Overview: Students will use the information gathered through their previous lessons, plus additional research they conduct to construct a story of a fire in an oak woodland and describes the impacts on five species.
Lesson Goal: To give students the opportunity to synthesize their learning about fire ecology in Northern California oak woodlands.
- Students can obtain and evaluate resources on plant’s, animal’s, and fungi’s reactions to wildfires.
- Students can communicate what causes certain reactions in a wildfire and what effects those have for plants and animals in an ecosystem.
- Students can communicate changes that happen in an ecosystem after a wildfire and how those changes impact the ecology of an ecosystem.
