Snakes. A Conservation Education Program of the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
Hubbard, Kelly; Theiss, Nancy S.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is charged with the responsibility to preserve, protect, and perpetuate the fish and wildlife in Kentucky. Involved in this broad program are a number of services, including the Wildlife Conservation Education Program. During the months of September through April, Conservation Club leaders visit almost every 5th and 6th grade student in Kentucky schools, presenting a monthly program on various wildlife resource topics. These programs include interesting activities and facts on resources such as Kentucky snakes, birds, fish, and other animals. A series of teacher's guides have been developed to accompany each monthly topic. Snakes is one of the supplementary activity guides in the series to be used as enrichment material before and after the visit by a Conservation Club Leader. General facts about snakes, information on poisonous snakes, descriptions of Kentucky snakes, and activities (stories, poems, crosswords, bookmarks/mobiles, and others) are presented. (Author/JN)
