Wild about Elk: An Educator's Guide.
Duckworth, Carolyn; And Others
The goal of Project WILD, a K-12 interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education program emphasizing wildlife, is to assist learners of any age in developing awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment resulting in informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive actions concerning wildlife and the environment. This educator's guide is one component of an elk education project, which also includes a poster illustrating elk in their seasonal habitats, a model elk trunk for hands-on use with students, and a video that provides the opportunity to see and hear elk in their natural environment. This guide provides a summary of the biology and ecology of the elk. A primary message woven throughout the guide is the importance of habitat to the survival of elk. The activities included are designed to educate students about elk and their habitat. Contains a glossary and a list of resources for more information. (JRH)
