This guide supplements the Wisconsin K-12 Forestry Education Lesson Guide. Ninety percent of all forest-related fires in Wisconsin are started by humans. Education is a key prevention tool to develop an informed and caring citizenry that will take action to prevent useless fires and who support the use of prescribed burning as a management tool.
This lesson guide focuses on the economic, social, and ecological implications of wildland fire in Wisconsin. This guide includes one age-appropriate lesson for each LEAF Unit (K-1, 2-3, 4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-12). The lessons teach processes and skills and include online resources.
