Reflection: Relevance Where Are They Now An Update on Animals Saved from Extinction - Section 5: Closure

 

This lesson shows students how a law passed in 1973 - The Endangered Species Act, helped dramatically to protect not only many animals, but plants as well from becoming extinct.  It was a very relevant topic for students to learn how laws can impact our environment and the importance of conservation. I found my students' discussion questions to be particularly profound, promoting rigorous discourse and further questioning by their peers.
