WCC Working With Teachers!

Learning about wolves and nature can help us understand why it is so important that we work to protect our environment for future generations.   The WCC strives to work closely with schools and we are currently working with partners from the prestigious Hackley School in NY to develop a wolf curriculum.  WCC encourages teachers to offer a “wolf unit” in their curriculum, here are some programs and lessons that some of our local teachers recommend!

(photo above)  Woodmere Middle School’s Class 8A participated in Mission: WOLF CONSERVATION! A program created by Diane Bentivenga and her Woodmere Middle School Students.  This unit requires teamwork.  Together the team was able to research wolves in literature, learn about the handful of efforts that are currently in use to safeguard the future of wolves and healthy habitat in North America,  design education campaigns and fundraise for a cause.  In 2010, the dedicated group closed their unti by creating this fantastic short film about the importance of wolves.  Enjoy!

In January of 2012, the Woodmere Middle School's Team 7A completed their own short film, this time focusing on the importance of the Endangered Species Act and the amazing species that this important environmental law safeguards. Please enjoy and share this compelling piece with your family and students. Team members Alberto, Ben, Eddie, Eros, Fernando, George, Gianna, Jessica, Jonathan, and Marsello exemplify the amazing potential of their generation to make this world a better place.
