Developed in 1983 by the Council for Environmental Education, Project WILD and Aquatic WILD are award-winning curriculum guides designed to help educators incorporate wildlife and conservation into their classrooms or programs. Lessons are interdisciplinary and promote critical thinking. Additionally, lessons can easily be used to meet Nebraska State Educational Standards for math, science, language arts and social studies.

Both Project WILD and Aquatic WILD teach lessons such as life cycles, habitats, wildlife populations, biodiversity, land management, and human-wildlife interactions. Project WILD focuses on terrestrial habitats including prairie, forests, urban and farm land. Aquatic WILD focuses on aquatic habitats including rivers, lakes, oceans and wetlands.

In Nebraska, Project WILD workshops provide training for both Project WILD and Aquatic WILD guides. Participants of Project WILD workshops can expect to learn not only content knowledge but also skills to implement activities into their setting. Workshops provide participants with both the Project WILD and Aquatic WILD guide.

Natural Math Educator Workshop @ Hastings Museum
Oct 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

This workshop is geared towards K-4th grade formal and informal educators.

This workshop requires a pre-registration.  To register please email monica.macoubrie@nebraska.gov with your full name, grades you work with, subjects taught and phone number.

Mathematics exists all around us in the natural world. It is our task to bring our children’s attention to the data and help them see the world around them in a mathematical way.

Although often “appearing more” in nature during early childhood, observing, counting, measuring, collecting data, comparing, and classifying objects are all mathematical concepts that are needed and used throughout middle school, high school, college, and into adulthood.

Throughout this workshop we will focus on using nature to teach math concepts such as symmetry, patterns, counting, observations, and the Fibonacci sequence.  This workshop is geared towards grades K-4.  All workshop participants will receive literature books and age appropriate activities associated with teaching math in the natural world.
