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
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.

material for grades 3-5:
