Winter Wildlife Traveling Trunk
Bring the wonder of a Grand Teton winter into your classroom! The three lesson plans included in the trunk can be used together or separately. Students will learn how the earth's tilt and rotation causes winter in Wyoming, local animal adaptations for surviving winter, and wildlife tracking skills. The trunk includes animal furs, tracks, books, and other exciting materials to help you teach these lessons.
Educators can borrow Grand Teton's traveling trunks to bring engaging, park-related props, materials, and multi-media into the classroom. Topics include National Parks, local history, wolves and climate change. There are curriculum-based lesson plans and activity suggestions to accompany each trunk. Trunks are free of charge and borrowers can pick them up in the park or local delivery may be available in some cases. Sorry, our trunks are too big to mail!
