MEET THE AUTHOR: Brad Meltzer
 Audience: Students in Grades K-3

According to Brad Meltzer, “This project began four years ago when my daughter was looking for clothes to wear and all she could find were pink shirts with princesses on them. I saw the mission right there. I wanted my kids to see more than princesses and sports figures. I wanted them to see real heroes… real people no different than themselves.” So, in 2014, he began a new series of first-person, non-fiction history books for children: I Am Amelia Earhart, I am Abraham Lincoln, I am Rosa Parks, and other books in the Ordinary People Change the World series.

Meltzer is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of adult thrillers, including The Inner Circle and its recent sequel, The Fifth Assassin. His comic books, “Justice League of America”, won the prestigious Eisner Award. This multi-talented author is also the host of the History Channel’s “Brad Meltzer’s Lost History” and "Brad Meltzer’s Decoded."

Prince Willian Network:

GrasslandsLIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure

Save the date on May 17, 2017 to join us for a live webcast with GrasslandsLIVE from Pawnee National Grassland in Colorado. For details and to check out the free resources, go to the web site at https://grasslandslive.org/.

The webcast will include information on the importance and conservation of grasslands, birds and other animals that depend on grassland habitat, the connection between grasslands in North and South America, and the role of citizens, public land management agencies, and non-governmental organizations in protecting and conserving natural resources.

Grassland areas are known by different names throughout the world including grasslands, prairie, savanna and scrublands. They can look desolate, generally containing few or no trees, except in areas along rivers and streams, but they are vibrant ecosystems. The United States 20 National Grasslands, managed by the US Forest Service, are an outstanding conservation success story. National Grasslands are rich in mineral, oil and gas resources. They also provide diverse recreational uses, such as mountain bicycling, hiking, hunting, fishing, photographing, birding, and sightseeing. Fossils, prehistoric and historic resources, as well as many cultural sites are being discovered. The National Grasslands are being managed to protect these important legacy resources.

If you weren’t able to watch the live program in Spanish from the Biosphere Reserve in Janos, you can watch it online at https://grasslandslive.org/espanol/programa_mexico with both Spanish and English subtitles.  The program is suitable for Spanish speaking students in grades 4 to 8, and students will learn about the grassland ecosystem and how scientists, citizens, local ranchers and farmers are working together to manage and conserve this important habitat.

Check out the web site at http://GrasslandsLIVE.org for lesson plans, links to citizen science activities, information about grasslands and more.  Got a question about grasslands?  Ask a scientist at:  http://grasslandslive.org/students/ask-a-scientist.  Also, connect with us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.pwnet.org/FSNatureLIVE) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/FSNatureLIVE).
