Extending the Learning
Classroom Units of Study
Using KETs Electronic Field Trip to the Forest and other resources, the six units of study listed below address topics in life science and ecology, economics, and geography. They can be downloaded from the AWAKE (All Wild About Kentuckys Environment) web site.
Developed by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service, the Tracy Farmer Center for the Environment, and the Kentucky Department of Education, AWAKE includes a wealth of resources about Kentuckys natural habitats and wildlife for students and teachers as well as for anyone who enjoys hiking, wildlife watching, hunting, or fishing.
The links below provide direct access to the complete downloadable units of study. The files are in PDF format and require Adobe® Acrobat Reader® to view. The AWAKE forestry curriculum page also includes links to suggested culminating events.
About the PDF Format and Adobe Acrobat Reader®
KET is using the .pdf file format to distribute many of our guides and samples.
This type of file uses the free software called Adobe Acrobat Reader
to open formatted documents for viewing and printing.
Once you have the software, it doesn’t matter whether you use a Mac or PC or what type of word processor you are using: Adobe Acrobat
Reader will allow you to use our guides, as well as the many other .pdf files
available on the web.
