First year teacher looking for teaching materials or lesson plans about deer, moose, wolves and black bear. First day ideas or activities are also welcome.
I use this website to teach hunter safety. This website has some things about animals including images and habitat. I teach in Iowa and I use the Kansas site because it does not make me sit their and listen to every video or lecture.
I recently obtained the Wildlife & Natural Resources Management Textbook, 3rd Edition by Delmar Cengage Learning. It has a lot of useful information and is easy to pull out what you want and make it your own. I recevied this free from our State Summer Conference. It might be worth contacting them to see if you can get one. I also use my conservation agent & local DNR people as resources. Our conservation has different kits that you can check out and use and return when finished! Maybe these will help you out a little!!
I am attaching a PowerPoint I recently created. It isnt anything fancy and has some extra wildlife large mammals in it, but you are welcome to use it! I got the information from the text book I talked about in the previous post!
I really like this power point. Thanks for sharing!
WOW! That is a great power point. I just skimmed through it and it looks fantastic! You do a great job of putting those together Joni! I am impressed. . .so impressed that I just might save that for future use, with acknowledgments of course!!
I am glad that the PowerPoint is useful for some of you. I must say that I didn't do much to the PowerPoint. In fact I built it as I was going through and teaching it & all I did was take information from a text book that I had received FREE from my summer conference!
Feel free to utilize it anyway you need!
One resource that I have also have found helpful include the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. They have a great website full of tons of useful information including animal fact sheets and excellent photos. I have used a member of the Fish & Wildlife service to come and dissected fish with my students. Project WILD and Project WILD Aquatic are two other great resources. Each book has got great activities that cover a variety of topics from habitat needs, linear population growth, to humans and animals living together. I received this books as part of a college course. In Wisconsin, the Department of Natural Resources offers training on these resources. Try googling your state and Project WILD to see what is available near you. Good luck!
these wildlife profiles are catered towards North Carolina, but you may find them helpful references.
