Alaska Correlations

Alaska Correlations
The Alaska State Content Standards correlated to:
Project WILD
Project Learning Tree
The Alaska Wildlife Curriculum

We are pleased to present Alaska Correlations. In keeping with national education reform efforts to enhance quality education for all students, Project WILD, Project Learning Tree and the Alaska Wildlife Curriculum created this guide correlating our three programs to the Alaska State Content Standards.

We realize that a common concern among educators is how to fit another element into an already full day. We hope that Alaska Correlations will make your job easier by providing a tool to identify activities in each of our three programs that will help you meet state educational standards.


Alaska Correlations Guide Contents

The correlation guide is divided into two sections for your convenience.

Reference by Activity:

If you are know the name of an activity from one of our programs, you can find out which content standards are addressed. All activities are listed alphabetically in each section.

Project Learning Tree

Project WILD

Alaska Wildlife Curriculum


Reference by Discipline:

If you are interested in a specific content standard, you can find a complete listing of all the activities from each of our three programs that will help you meet that standard.

We hope you find this guide helpful for lesson planning. Any suggestions for improving Alaska Correlations or our educational programs are welcome. An evaluation form is provided in the back of each reference section.


Project WILD and Project Learning Tree

Project WILD and Project Learning Tree are conservation education programs that offer training, background and materials to teachers through educator workshops throughout the state of Alaska.

The Alaska Department of Natural Resources sponsors Project Learning Tree and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game sponsors Project WILD and the Alaska Wildlife Curriculum.

Dedication

Creating educational opportunities for students that integrate the natural world with the classroom puts education into the context of their lives.
