As a teacher, it may not be easy to arrange visits to wildlife areas or zoos for your students to pursue animal studies. Engage your students in the study of urban wildlife instead, and open their eyes up to observing the world around them. Here you’ll find a 4-page newspaper for students, and lots of resources for teachers. These include background information, lessons, an assessment piece, a bird identification guide, bibliography, glossary, and videos. It also gives tips for teaching students to respect the nature around them. A separate area of the site offers ideas for taking action to care for the environment.
