Here are 8 ways to explore the world of endangered animals using ARKive in your classroom.
1. Invite your students to find their favorite animals to learn a little bit more about them.
2. Use it as research using the brainstorm sheet below or get it at Slideshare.
3. Search for Teaching Resources by Age Level: Ages 5-7, 7-11, 11-14, and 14-16.
4. Excite your youngsters by inviting them to play some of the ARKive Educational Games.
5. Have students search Animals by Geography & build & expand their mapping skills.
6. Investigate Climate Change and the animals affected by it.
7. Invite your students to send an Eco E-card, or login to create Environmental scrapbooks.
8. Build your resource files as a teacher by visiting Education in Arkive.
Sooo many animals...so little time!!
