Instructional Resources

The activities and presentations below were developed from concepts presented in the story. Educators in a formal school setting can use the resources to supplement an existing curriculum. Likewise, environmental outreach coordinators and park naturalists can use these activities and presentations to provide learning experiences about migratory birds and their habitats outside a formal school setting. These resources give educators the opportunity to do the following:

  • Utilize innovative, relevant, and interdisciplinary instructional resources for elementary grade levels
  • Create a model for integration of endangered species instructional resources into existing curriculum following national standards
  • Promote public awareness about issues involving the protection and conservation of endangered species and their habitats

*Alignment to the state-adopted curriculum is provided for each Activity and PowerPoint presentation

Funding to develop these instructional resources was provided by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department contract #409330 and U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service Section 6 grant TX E-133-R
