Many of the stories in our series can be used as a valuable resource for teachers. These stories can lead students, particularly those in middle and high school, to a deeper understanding of current topics in conservation, science, history and environmental studies.

The segments, along with the provided graphic organizers, can be used as a springboard for discussion and debate, and will engage your students’ higher order thinking skills. We want to be a resource as you seek ways to encourage your students to think critically about how theory and practical field work are combined to overcome challenges and achieve results. 

We encourage you to explore how you can use our stories to bring real-world lessons to your students. We welcome your experimentation and feedback on our forum. Send us your ideas for new stories, and let us know how we can help you by producing new material that meets your needs.
