The materials in this educational packet are designed for use with students in grades 4 through 7. They consist of an overview, three lesson plans, student data sheets, and a poster. The overview discusses hunting as a tool for wildlife management, the management of wildlife populations and hunter participation in providing research data, and the economic aspects of hunting. A glossary and list of reference materials are included. The lesson plans provide a list of learning outcomes, instructional strategies, a list of materials needed, and an activity review sheet. Lesson activities include: (1) investigating the capture/recapture method of estimating animal populations; (2) playing a game which shows how wildlife populations fluctuate in response to environmental factors; and (3) taking part in a deer management exercise. The two-sided poster shows a collage of hunting scenes from prehistoric times to the present (side 1) and a series of graphs and charts illustrating the contributions hunters have made to conservation through the years (side 2). A student fact sheet on the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act (the Pittman-Robertson Program) is also provided. (JN)
