Classroom Investigations: Citizen Voice in Land Use Decisions

Students investigate the history of the BLM’s precursor agency, and they learn how citizens can help influence land use decisions today. Designed for middle school students, this guide can be adapted for high school and upper elementary levels. The activities encourage students to examine the principles of “multiple use and sustained yield,” research segments of the BLM’s historical timeline, and identify ways citizens can participate in the land use planning process. Students engage diverse cognitive skills such as interpreting graphics and assessing various civic action strategies.
