Our Rachel Carson lesson plan introduces students to writer, scientist, and ecologist Rachel Carson, who played a key role in the birth of environmentalism in the 20th century. During this lesson, students are asked to place events in Carson’s life in chronological order. Students are also asked to work creatively with a partner to create a poster encouraging people to protect the environment and to do things which will save natural resources.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify Rachel Carson and list facts about her life and explain her significance in history.

    Good material

    The reading worked well for my eighth grade students during their social activism unit. I used it as a scavenger hunt activity where I cut up the reading into sections and created questions to go along with it. Students searched around the room to find the answers.
