Birds are everywhere…school grounds, local parks, even your backyard! Why not use birds to engage students in learning all subjects? With the Flying WILD Curriculum Guide, this is easier than ever!

Flying WILD: An Educator’s Guide to Celebrating Birds provides activities that teach educators about birds, their migration, and what people can do to help birds and their habitats. The activities can be used to teach classroom lessons or set up service-learning projects about birds and their habitats.
