This trunk provides teachers with all the resources they need to teach their students about the Wildlife Conservation. It is designed to inspire students through hands on education, small group research, and class presentations.
Students will be placed in small groups and assigned one species that has a unique conservation story. They will also be handed wildlife items that came from their species. This might be skulls, pelts, feet, antlers, and more. Or, it might be items confiscated by the US Fish and Wildlife Service from poachers and traffickers. This includes ivory jewelry, hide shoes, traditional medicine boxes, wallets, purses, and more.
Your students will utilize animal booklets that will guide them through what happened to their species, the human causes of its endangerment, how humans stepped up to help the species, and the current state of its conservation. After their research, they will create a presentation to the class to teach their fellow students about their species.
Request this trunk now to help inspire your students and teach them about the interaction between humans and wildlife.
Our education trunks are provided for free to all schools; for many schools, we will even ship the trunk to you for free! You can decide whether to pick up the trunk or have it shipped to your school.
Pick up and drop off at the museum is free to every school!
If your school is within Wyoming, but more than an hour from the museum, the museum will pay to ship the trunk to you. But, you must cover the cost of shipping back to the museum.
If your school is outside of Wyoming, you must cover the cost of shipping both ways.
The museum does not ship trunks to schools within an hour of the museum, but pick up is always available.
