Currently about 80 percent of Texans live in urban areas such as San Antonio, and while young people support protecting the environment, they have a poor understanding of environmental issues and how ecosystems work.
To help urban youth better understand the natural environment, AgriLife Extension has developed museum-quality educational modules and made them available to elementary and middle schools.
The modules, which target mainly third through seventh-grade students, are comprised of hands-on displays, interactive computer programs, videos, lesson plans and printed information on renewable natural resources, urban-dwelling wildlife, aquatic ecology and water issues.
4-H School Enrichment Modules:
- The White-Tailed Deer (3rd Grade)
- Wildlife Success Stories and Endangered Wildlife (3rd Graders)
- Something’s Fishy! (4th Graders)
- City Critters: Learning About Wildlife in an Urban Environment (5th Graders)
- Predators in the Classroom (4th-7th)
- Managing Largemouth Bass in Texas Ponds: A Wildlife and Fish Management Curriculum for High School Math and Science Students
