Backyard Wildlife Habitat

Backyard Wildlife Habitat

Picture your students listening to frogs, watching butterflies, and feeding the birds. Where is this? In your own schoolyard. The National Wildlife Federation provides expertise to plan this idyllic setting. Students will have hands-on learning experiences in their self-created environment. A free interactive "Schoolyard Habitats Program" helps teachers and students plan and implement their own habitat. They are also offering a virtual field trip on Wednesday, April 13, 2005 from noon to 1:00 p.m. EST. Students can keep journals on the daily changes in the habitat and learn by doing. Backyard School Wildlife Habitats can also be certified with the National Wildlife Federation.
