Cur Wild Neighbors: Teaching Unit (Grades 1-3).
Designed to sensitize primary grade students to the responsibilities of protecting wild animals, this teaching unit contains a variety of interdisciplinary worksheets and activities. Although focusing on wild animals indigenous to San Mateo County (California), materials are easily adaptable for use in other areas. Examples of activities are building a bird feeder, photographing wild animals, solving puzzles, enacting role plays, and simulating the food chain. Lesson plans outline the various applications of activities in each of the following disciplines: language arts, social studies, health, science, and math. Also provided are a glossary for students, teacher answer key, and a list of media, print, and organizational resources. (LP)
