Welcome to the Manu Classroom Resources!
These lessons were developed to provide interesting, hands-on science for middle level students; however, the lessons do contain suggested extensions and adjustments for use with elementary and secondary students. Each lesson can also be modified to be conducted at home.

The lessons were created to parallel the program, The Living Edens "Manu." The lesson plans focus on the specific aspects of this environment and target elements of Manu that represent this truly unique region.

Suggestions for lesson content improvement and implementation are always welcome. Your comments will assist in making the lessons more user friendly. Please e-mail your comments and/or suggestions to PBS Online.
