The World Wildlife Federation’s Go Wild website is a great place to find online and offline activities that can help elementary school students learn about a variety of animals and ecosystems. The site is arranged into six sections; Americas, Asia, Africa, Europe, Polar, and Oceans. Each section includes online games and quizzes about animals. Each section also includes a hands-on activity like creating a shoe box safari.
Applications for Education
Due to its mix of online and offline activities Go Wild offers something for almost all classroom settings. The site is one that I might consider adding to my classroom blog as a resource for parents who are looking for educational activities to do at home with their children.
