Arizona Game and Fish Department: Focus Wild Arizona - America's Wildlife: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

The struggle to preserve America’s wildlife is an amazing tale of national and natural history.

It is a story of what we can accomplish when we work together toward a common goal. This curriculum will help you bring this story to your students.

The curriculum is intended for high school science and social studies classrooms. It consists of five interactive lessons set to state and national standards.

Due to numerous requests from our partners and to help commemorate 75 years of Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration programs, we have just released a collection of new activities that teach important wildlife conservation concepts in an informal setting. These three stand-alone activities are perfect for zoos, museums, summer camps and so many more non-traditional academic environments. They can even be used as extension activities for the regular classroom unit.

America’s Wildlife: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow took second place in Education at the 2010 Association of Conservation Information awards. It has been distributed to educators in more than 40 states.

The curriculum is free. However, we do ask that you complete a short form before downloading. To access the materials, click on the link below.
