Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps

Onondaga Lake Cleanup Classroom Worksheets

Worksheets based on cleanup activities reinforce NYS standards and Next Generation Science Standards for middle school students.

The Corps has developed a curriculum for students based on the Onondaga Lake cleanup.

The activities are designed to reinforce New York State standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Students learn how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) have led to improvements in Onondaga Lake and the surrounding areas. This includes the resurgence of about 90 acres of wetlands on the shores of Onondaga Lake and along the lake’s tributaries, which benefits birds, fish, other wildlife, and people in our community.

The goal of the curriculum is to help students understand the value of Onondaga Lake as an Important Bird Area while participating in engaging classroom and field trip activities.

Worksheets can be used before, during, and after a visit to the Onondaga Lake Visitors Center. Click here to download the printable worksheets.
