Audubon Adventures!

Available for Grades 3 to 5

The national Audubon Society has developed an environmental education program for children in grades 3 to 5 called Audubon Adventures. It was developed by professional environmental educators and presents basic, scientifically accurate facts about birds, wildlife, and their habitats. It comes packaged as a Classroom Kit (serving 32 students) or as an Individual Kit (serving 1 student). The program can be used by classroom teachers, after-school program coordinators, special education instructors, language arts teachers, and homeschoolers.

Each classroom kit contains:
Four different editions of the award-winning Audubon Adventures student nature news magazine (32 copies of each)
A Classroom Resource Manual with hands-on activities and science background
A Classroom Wall Certificate
An environmental wall poster

The Coulee Region Audubon Society has been purchasing classroom kits for local teachers for quite a few years and we would like to continue that program this year. Since the new school year is approaching, I thought that I would send out a reminder that this program is available. If you know educators who work with this age group, I would encourage you to suggest that they look at the Audubon Adventures section of the Audubon website to see if this material would be a useful addition to their curriculum. If they are interested, have them contact me and I will work with them to get a kit ordered as soon as possible so that it is available for the new school year.

There are 5 different kits available - one of which is brand new. Therefore, even if students (or a teacher) have already seen a specific Audubon Adventures kit in a prior year, there are other kits available that cover different topics.

The following link will take you directly to the page discussing the material for grades 3-5:
