Reading is Fundamental

The Stamford Advocate has a story about one Connecticut school's skepticism after receiving a federal alert warning against the use giant African snails (Achatina fulica, among others) in the classroom. Apparently teachers and staff at the elementary school thought the email warnings from the USDA were spam, and assumed the warning about a tropical snail wouldn't affect New England. Glad none of the science teachers I know act like that.

If you are a teacher interested in incorporating invasive species ecology into your curriculum, a good starting point is the Educational Resources links page.
