This online lesson about the native flora of the Great Lakes region is part of the Great Lakes Information Network's TEACH website designed for elementary through high school students (last reported on in the October 18, 2002 NSDL Scout Report for the Physical Sciences). The Native Flora site was designed as a mini-lesson within the Environment section of TEACH. The Flora lesson contains brief sections that address Great Lakes vegetational history, native landscaping, plant species, resources for starting a native plant garden, and fun facts. The lesson is accompanied by photos, maps, diagrams, links to other sites for additional information, and links to the site's glossary. At the end of the lesson, students can test themselves with a nine-question quiz. In addition to the Environment section, TEACH Great Lakes offers mini-lessons for the following sections: Geography, History & Culture, Careers & Business, and Pollution.
