This resource is designed to educate students, through activities teachers can use, about the environmental importance of Lake Ponchartrain. The main goal is to foster a sense of stewardship in students through learning to identify environmental issues that affect the lake, offer changes, and develop solutions. Although the resource deals with the Lake Ponchartrain Basin, the activities are applicable to students and teachers beyond this local level. The activities and lesson plans cover everything from what defines a watershed, to natural resources and resource management, ecosystems, and the history of the basin. A field trip guide for teachers and internet resources for teachers and students is also included.
