Multidisciplinary Wildlife Teaching Activities.
Hernbrode, William R., Ed.
This guide provides information and activities descriptions designed to allow the teacher to use wildlife concepts in the teaching of various subjects. The author suggests that wildlife and animals are tremendous motivators for children and hold their attention. In the process, concepts of wildlife interaction with man and the environment are taught along with the major subject. The guide does not presuppose an extensive knowledge of science. In addition to activities and concepts tailored for a variety of classroom subjects, the guide provides a history of American wildlife, a presentation of basic concepts of wildlife education, and a bibliography of field guides, activities, life histories, and periodicals of interest to the classroom teacher seeking to use their technique.
