Grade 6-7 Pre-Visit Activity
Wildlife Observations

This activity gives students the opportunity to participate in an activity the wildlife biologists and wildlife managers do as a part of their jobs… observation. Students will form research teams and observe wildlife for a specific period of time in a specific location. They will be looking for what wildlife species are in their research area, and what behaviors those wildlife species exhibit. Observations/findings will be recorded so that patterns can be identified and suggestions made on how to increase wildlife activity near their school/homes.

This Activity Includes:

  • A program planning page
  • A sample observation map handout
