WILD’s good friends and partners at Ms. Maggie’s Earth Adventures just posted a great new lesson on Nomkhulubwane, the stunning elephant sculpture created by Andries Botha which traveled to WILD9 as a symbol of connectivity and sustainability. The lessons, available in both English and Spanish, are designed to integrate learning objectives in math, science, language arts, cultural studies and geography with real environmental issues – as are all of Ms. Maggie’s lessons. Ms. Maggie’s lessons are free to subscribers, and sent via a weekly e-newsletter each Tuesday!
Ms. Maggie’s Earth Adventures and WILD have a long history of collaboration…and the Ms. Maggie’s lessons promote the life-long commitment to wild-nature that is so fundamental to WILD’s work world-wide. They have 2 lessons on elephants which feature some of WILD’s project work in Africa (Mali Elephant Project and Isandlwana Village Project) available in the Teacher’s Lounge. What I like most about the Ms. Maggie’s activities is that they build on each other – students see how various disciplines relate to each other and how learning relates to real-life experiences. If you’re looking for a great way to teach your students or kids about the environment, empower them to take initiative to protect our planet, and to use some really great multi-disciplinary and effective learning tools – go on an Earth Adventure with Ms. Maggie’s crew today!
