Here’s what teachers are saying about our curriculum
“I used different parts of each lesson with each class’ ability. The many choices of activities allows for differentiation over a large expanse of abilities.” –6th grade Science Teacher
“I think you did an outstanding job of capturing the interactions between wildlife and people – and the information and activities were quite thought-provoking – but also will be lots of fun and engaging for the students… I especially loved lesson 5 titled Taking Action! The activities contained here could very well be life-changing for students.” –Conservation Coordinator
“This curriculum does a wonderful job of helping students to understand the various points of view and the factors involved regarding snow leopards…They also learned to better understand the food web, consumers and producers, and the effects of upsetting this delicate balance.” –5th Grade Teacher
