Correlations

Correlations to the NAAEE Guidelines

In order to meet the needs of educators nationwide, correlations of Project WILD K-12 materials have been developed for the North American Association for Environmental Education's (NAAEE) Excellence in Environmental Education: Guidelines for Learning. These guidelines identify knowledge and skills essential for environmental literacy and articulate how environmental education fits into formal classroom settings.

Correlations to the National Science Standards

In order to meet the demands of education reform, Project WILD has developed a correlation of the Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide and the Project WILD Aquatic K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide to the National Science Education Standards (the Standards).

This 36-page document is divided into three sections: K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. Each of the activities has been correlated to an assessment rubric that indicates the fundamental concept taught in each activity. Using this document, educators can easily fit Project WILD activities into their lesson plans by following the user-friendly format for each section of the Standards.
