What is Project WILD?
Project WILD is an interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education program emphasizing wildlife. The program is designed for educators of kindergarten through 12th grade students. Project WILD capitalizes on the natural interest that children and adults have in wildlife by providing hands-on activities that enhance student learning in all subject and skill areas.
Project WILD activities are designed for integration into existing courses of study, instructors may use one or many activities or the entire set of activities may serve quite effectively as the basis for a course of study. Each activity has been classroom tested and includes objectives, methods, background information, materials needed, procedures, evaluation suggestions, recommended grade levels, subjects, skills, duration, group size, setting and key vocabulary. A glossary is provided, as well as cross-references by topics, school subjects, grade level and skills.
