During the 2017-2018 schoolyear, Bartramian Audubon Society is offering Audubon Adventures curriculum materials for students in grades 3-6 in schools in Butler, Lawrence, Mercer and Venango Counties. Audubon Adventures classroom learning kits include printed student magazines and access for teachers to online instructional guides, assessments, interactive games, other teaching modules and resources. The standards-based content and materials can be integrated across multiple subject areas.
The theme for 2017-18 is “Birds, Bees, Flowers & Trees.” Three related learning modules develop students’ understanding of the interconnectedness of natural systems, particularly the functions and importance of birds, bees and native plants:
- Native Plants,
in which students learn why plants are the foundation of life on the earth.
- Bird Migration, which explains the importance of healthy habitats to birds’ journeys, and how conservation of these habitats benefits many species, including humans.
- Insect Pollinators, which describes the characteristics of native bees, as well as the importance of their partnerships with flowering plants to people and healthy environments.
