Project WILD: Aquatic Education Activity Guide.
Memphis State Univ., TN. Tennessee Administrative Software Clearinghouse.; Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.
Project WILD is an interdisciplinary, supplementary environmental and conservation education program which emphasizes wildlife. This document is one guide developed by Project WILD with the specific purpose of focusing on aquatic wildlife, or any wild animals that depend upon aquatic environments for survival. The book contains instructional activities which are designed to be integrated into school subjects and skill areas, especially science, social studies, language arts, mathematics, and art. It is suggested that educators in non-school settings, such as youth leaders, camp personnel, and park naturalists could also use the guide. The 40 activities are divided into sections dealing with: (1) awareness and appreciation; (2) the diversity of wildlife values; (3) ecological principles; (4) management and conservation; (5) people, culture, and wildlife; (6) trends, issues, and consequences; and (7) responsible human actions. The appendices include a variety of references, cross-listings, and additional instructional suggestions. Also provided are a glossary of terms, the Project WILD conceptual framework, and a list of agencies and organizations that can provide information. (TW)
