This video summarizes the round-up of nearly 3,000 wild horses in Nevada. It would be a good augmentation to a unit on North American habitats/ecosystems and how they can be affected by human involvement. This lesson would be best suited as a culminating activity for the unit, as the students would gain more from it if they had already developed some background knowledge on the topics addressed.
