Teachers, parents, and students praise this classic K-12 environmental education program used internationally. Project WILD instructors have taught thousands of Canadian students from kindergarten through high school — and more than 120,000 Canadian educators can't be wrong!
With the interdisciplinary Project WILD Activity Guide, you’ll explore topics from what types of habitats migrating birds need to make it to their wintering grounds to how new fishing technologies have affected fish populations. The guide features 121 complete lesson plans about wildlife and the environment that can each be adapted for any age, grade or subject.
Since 1984, Project WILD has been a model for WILD Education programs in Canada. It is brought to you under agreement with the U.S. Council for Environmental Education.
