The National Association of Conservation Districts recently released free curriculum for students in kindergarten through eighth grade entitled, “A Guide to Conducting a Pollinator Conservation Field Day.” The information may be downloaded on the association’s new conservation education Hub.
The downloadable curriculum provides interactive learning experiences for elementary and middle school students, and provides pollinator-themed activities for the classroom and outdoors. Activities have been correlated to education standards.
The guide was developed through support from the David Rockefeller Fund Pollinator Education Initiative Grant and the Pollinator Partnership.
The guide offers those who work with educators as well as the teachers, resources and ideas for a pollinator field day. Materials included planning and implementation guidelines, lessons, activities and evaluation strategies.
