Project WILD and Aquatic WILD are state-sponsored, national programs
of wildlife and aquatic wildlife related activities for teachers to
use in conjunction with their current curriculum. The activities,
which correlated to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, cover
many subject areas. They are "hands-on" and are easily integrated
into units on adaptations, endangered species, life cycles, senses,
seasons, classification, migration, animal behavior and ecosystems.
These fun and engaging activities are designed to supplement and
enhance a teacher's current curriculum.
Participants will receive two Activity Guides with over 150 new
activities and can receive 8 to 12 hours toward professional
development after completing the workshop requirements. The workshop
will take place both indoors and outdoors so please dress
appropriately. Morning refreshments will be provided, please bring a
lunch. If you enjoyed Project WET or Project Learning Tree you will
love Project WILD and Aquatic WILD!
