Use in lessons or as self-guided learning opportunities for students

Cheyenne - No matter how Wyoming students are learning this fall, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department is making it easy to keep conservation in the classroom. Game and Fish is offering free resources for educators of all grade levels to use in lessons or as self-guided learning opportunities for students.

The resources are part of Expo at Home, a webpage boasting hundreds of uniquely-Wyoming educational activities, videos, quizzes, projects and more from Game and Fish and other conservation organizations. 

Educators and students alike can learn through eight topics: adventure, birds, large mammals, fish and aquatic habitat, terrestrial habitat and conservation, hunting and shooting skills, recipes and other wildlife. Activities are categorized by type of content, and the target grade-level is marked with a symbol.

“As schools come back in session this fall, whether that be in person or remotely, Game and Fish wanted to support educators who are tackling new methods of teaching and caregivers who might suddenly find themselves in the instructor role,” said Kathryn Boswell, Game and Fish hunter and angler participation coordinator. 

Game and Fish regional offices may be able to support activities and lesson plans with materials available to checkout for hands-on learning. Most offices have wildlife hides, antlers and horns, skulls and tracks. Check with the local Game and Fish office’s regional information and education specialist for more specifics on what may be available in each location.

To start learning, visit the Expo at Home webpage.
