Science and Civics: Sustaining Wildlife
Council for Environmental Education
Project WILD's new high school curriculum, "Science and Civics: Sustaining Wildlife", is designed to serve as a guide for involving students in environmental action projects aimed at benefitting the local wildlife found in a community. It involves young people in decisions affecting people, wildlife, and their shared habitat in the community. The program consists of four major components: (1) Awareness: alerts students to the impact of human and individual activities on habitat quality and quantity; (2) Participatory Democracy: develops principles related to government structures and is appropriate for government and civics units of social studies courses; (3) Habitat Exploration: studies biotic and abiotic parameters of a site and is appropriate for ecology and environmental science units of science courses; and (4) Taking Action: guides both science and social studies students in designing, implementing, and communicating projects to enhance a particular site.
