A Home for Pearl. A Videotape Series about Wildlife Habitat for Elementary Students. Instructional Guide.
Lambeth, Ellen; Westervelt, Miriam O.
This instructional guide (accompanied by a video) teaches children from ages 6 to 12 about wildlife habitats. The instructional guide is divided into four parts and consists of supplementary activities to enhance the video. Each section of the guide provides an overview, objectives, story summary, key words in the video, discussion questions, ideas for follow-up activities, a coloring page illustrating the featured wild animal, and Project WILD activities designed to reinforce material presented in the video. The featured wild animals include a robin, rabbit, and a barn owl. The major character is a bald eagle named Pearl. The children are introduced to Pearl at a wildlife rehabilitation center where she is recovering from wounds. The children learn about wildlife habitats by attempting to find the wild home that is best for Pearl. Appendices include evaluation exercises that measure program impact on student attitudes and knowledge concerning wildlife. Information is provided about Project WILD, sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the project state coordinators. The regional offices of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are also listed. This guide contains numerous pictures and photographs. (LP)
