Celebrate Endangered Species Day

Endangered Species Information Available to Biology/Science Teachers

Biology, ecology, general science and other teachers will find a variety of resources about teaching endangered species preservation on the Endangered Species Day web site’s Teacher Resource Center.
The Teacher Resource Center features:
*A comprehensive lesson plan for teaching about endangered species preservation.
*An art lesson plan to help students create endangered species artwork.
*A series of pod casts providing information on endangered species preservation and everyday actions to help.
*Video showing how one teacher taught endangered species conservation in his biology class.

The Endangered Species Day website also offers details about the 2012 Youth Art Contest (March 15, 2012 is the deadline for entries.) and a Toolkit that provides a variety of materials to assist teachers in celebrating Endangered Species Day with their classes. The latter includes a “Planning an Endangered Species Day Event” fact sheet, stickers, posters, bookmarks, and a coloring/activity book for children, which can be downloaded and printed.
