Students were engaged in the resource and got started right away. We had a great discussion based on the map work and conservation efforts.
We had seen a lot of disturbing footage on the news about people getting too close to the buffalo. I read this with my students before going to Yellowstone and I feel like it helped them to have a healthy respect for the animals!
