Explore the Great Lakes

June 2020

For today’s adventure, we’re heading to The Great Lakes! Located between the United States and Canada, Lakes Superior, Huron, Michigan, Ontario, and Erie make up the largest freshwater surface on Earth. The area is home to over 3,500 different species.

 

Start the lesson off with this video from TedEd. They do a great job of explaining what the lakes are, and how important they are to the ecosystem. Watch ahead of the kids and jot down some questions for them to answer at the end.

 

We mentioned earlier that the lakes are home to over 3,500 species. This tour of the coastal wetlands is a great way to meet some of those species up close, and explore the lake coasts.

 

Now it’s time to create your own mini lake! Recreate your favorite lake, or create your own.
