Teaching Resources for Endangered Species Day, May 18, 2012
Endangered Species Day was established by the U.S. Senate, and is celebrated the 3rd Friday of May.
It's a great way for students to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species, and simple actions that to take to help protect our nation’s disappearing wildlife. Each year, thousands of people celebrate Endangered Species Day at parks, wildlife refuges, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, libraries, schools and community centers.
You can participate in field trips, community clean-ups, film showings, classroom presentations, or create your own activities with the Endangered Species Day Toolkit. It includes a step-by-step guide to planning an event and materials to make it fun and successful.
Teaching Resources: Teachers will find a variety of resources about teaching endangered species preservation on the Endangered Species Day website's Teacher Resource Center and at http://eelinked.naaee.net/n/eelinked/posts/Celebrate-Endangered-Species-Day1
