Environmental Education Resources

Are you unsure of curriculum that may enhance your science classroom? Let us help you out with that with some of these great resources!

 


 Project WET

 

Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is dedicated to reaching children, parents, teachers and community members with water education. Since its creation in 1984, Project WET has achieved its worldwide mission of water education by:

 

  • Publishing water resource materials in several languages
  • Providing training workshops on divers water topics
  • Organizing community water events
  • Building a worldwide network of resource professionals

The Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide is a collection of water-related activities that are hands-on, easy to use, and fun! More than 60 activities incorporate large and small group learning, whole-body activities, laboratory investigations and a variety of other formats. Supplementary resources are available to complement and enrich many of the activities.

 

Workshops are held periodically throughout the year to facilitate this curriculum. Contact the Paulding SWCD Office for more information!

  Project WILD

Project WILD involves young people and wildlife, a proven formula for generating interest and participation. It is a supplementary education program emphasizing awareness, appreciation, and understanding of wildlife and natural resources. Attractive and easy to use, Project WILD is an ideal way to supplement your curriculum and fire the imagination of your students.

 

Project WILD teaches young people how to think about wildlife, not what to think. Students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade learn basic concepts about wild animals, their needs and importance, and their relationships to people and the environment. The hands-on, diverse activities help develop problem-solving and decision making skills in determining responsible human actions.

 

Project WILD activity guides are available to educators free to low cost, and only when they attend a workshop. Trained volunteer facilitators conduct educator workshops for over 2,000 educators annually around the state throughout the year. A current listing of upcoming workshops can be found at the bottom of this page.  In addition, the Division of Wildlife conducts annual leadership workshops to train new facilitators.

For more information, contact the Wildlife Education Coordinator at 1-800-WILDLIFE (945-3543) or outdoor.education@dnr.state.oh.us
