Lesson 1: Understanding the Laikipian Landscape
This lesson challenges students to explore the Laikipian Landscape using Google Earth. The overarching goal is to develop ideas about how environmental and human impacts influence biodiversity in the region. The scavenger hunt will invite students to use Google Earth more as a research tool than as a repository of information.
