Traditional Ecological Knowledge in the Solomon Islands

Designed for middle and high school students, in this lesson plan, students recall their experiences collecting plants and animals from the local environment and build stories of how they have learned to collect and use those resources. Students trace the knowledge they have gained from family and the community and explore the broader concept of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), the benefits of TEK, and how the TEK they possess will be passed to future generations.
