An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Unit on Florida This unit is important because it teaches students about the history of Florida. It is also meaningful because it emphasizes the importance of conservation of Florida's ecosystems.

To be responsible citizens in the state in which they reside, students need an understanding and appreciation of Florida's history, ecology, and geography.
