Summary:Keep Wild Animals Wild lesson plans, videos and worksheets provide everything educators need to introduce students to what makes wild animals wild, why wildlife trade is a big threat not just to animals and ecosystems, but to people too, and how to help keep wild animals wild. The lesson plans are tailored to three instructional levels and meet common core objectives in geography, economics and life science: students aged 5-7 (Grade K-2) will learn the differences between wild and domestic animals and how they can watch and appreciate wildlife responsibly, and students 8-10 (Grade 3-5) and 11-14 (Grade 6-8) will learn about wildlife trade, why it is relevant to them and why we need to protect wild animals from wildlife trade. The education resources include a teaching guide with assessments, lesson plans with student worksheets, student magazines, classroom videos, a wall poster, and more.
