This website features a collection of secondary level science activities for teaching about the Great Lakes using a structured decision making approach as a way to help narrow the disparity between knowledge and action when it comes to environmental issues. Topics include the management of endangered species such as cormorants and piping plovers, the Lake Erie Dead Zone, toxins in Great Lakes fish, contaminated sediments and watershed land use. The site has lesson plans regarding the biosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and geographic characteristics, as well as links to other useful resources.
