Some Books About Alaska. Introduction Juvenile Adult Fiction Adult Non-fiction Addresses for Selected Alaskana Bookstores Introduction The Alaska State Library produces this annual publication because we feel that such an annotated list is of value to libraries in Alaska.
We have attempted to make this list as complete as possible for titles that appeared in 1999 as well as some titles missed in previous years. Some Books About Alaska notes books that are not necessarily held by the Alaska State Library. Please consult your local library or other library databases for libraries holding these titles. Every attempt has been made to have each title reviewed by a librarian. Many titles are available through interlibrary loan, and libraries are encouraged to review titles before making the decision to purchase. Publications are available from the publisher of the work or other indicated source. Annotations to the list Alaska materials can be elusive, being published in limited quantity with little publicity. Madeline Hunter Lesson Plan Template. Pin by Lifelong Learning on Arctic Mini-Unit.

A Guide for Parents and Teachers News about the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is in the newspaper, on TV and the radio.
This disaster is difficult enough for adults to comprehend and deal with. For kids, it can seem even more complicated and scary. Is your child wondering about what’s happening in the Gulf? Or worrying about the consequences? Here are some tips to help you talk about the Gulf oil spill together—and to equip your child to better understand and cope with environmental problems in the future. 1. Preschool/Early elementary: This is a time for children to explore the immediate environment (backyard, neighborhood, nearby parks) in a way that is hands-on and full of joy. 2. 3. One Ocean. Life on Earth would not be possible without the ocean.
When viewed from space, our planet is a world covered with water. All living things are intimately tied to this water in so many ways. Yet, despite its importance, a 2003 report by the Pew Oceans Commission determined that the United States' general public knows very little about the ocean. But why is this important? To understand how the ocean impacts our lives daily, we need to understand how it influences weather and climate, that its inhabitants produce much of the oxygen we breathe, that the life found in the ocean feeds us, and how its currents are used to connect humans around the Earth, as well as the myriad of ocean life forms that inspire and amaze us.
This guide was developed to support teachers in teaching topics with real-world context, and provide them with the background to feel competent and comfortable when teaching about the ocean.

Twenty-five years ago on March 24, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez slammed into Bligh Reef and spilled more than 11 million gallons of crude oil into the cold, clear waters of Alaska's Prince William Sound -- one of the "last best places" on Earth.
The oil charged through Prince William Sound and out into the Gulf of Alaska, damaging more than 1,300 miles of some of the most remote, wild shoreline in this country. This happened 25 years ago, so we might note the anniversary as we do any other historical event. That, however, would imply that the oil spill is over. It's not, and likely never will be.
The sound's coastal ecosystem is permanently damaged. The government considers, as of 2010, only 13 of the 32 monitored wildlife populations, habitats and resource services that were injured in the spill as fully "recovered" or "very likely recovered. " Marybeth Holleman The "not recovering" list also includes Pacific herring, one of the sound's keystone species. For Educators. Gulf Oil Spill Collection.
