National Geographic’s cover story this month is about the giant Redwood trees. To complement the cover story, National Geographic has created some interactive resources for learning about the redwoods. The interactive resources include a map, a timeline, and an interactive drawing. The interactive drawing can be used to learn about all of the life at the top of the Redwood forests. The map can be used to explore the range of redwoods. The timeline shows the growth stages of redwoods compared to significant events in history.
Applications for Education
These interactive resources from National Geographic could be good for anyone teaching a basic course in environmental science.
