Invite WAE into your school to encourage more than academic learning but motivation for seeking new learning, comprehension beyond the text book and character education! Connect content with face-to-face encounters with wild exotic animals and reinforce learning.
Science Connections (taken from the North Carolina Standard Course of Study)
ü The learner will observe and note the similarities and difference among animals utilizing research skills such as: observation, compare, contrast and classifying.
ü The learner will investigate and understand that animals as well as humans have senses that allow one to seek, find, take in, and react or respond to information in order to learn about one’s surroundings. Key concepts include: a) five senses and corresponding sensing organ (taste – tongue, touch – skin, smell – nose, hearing – ears, and sight –eyes).
ü The learner will investigate and understand basic needs and life processes of plants and animals. Key concepts include:
§ living things change as they grow, and they need food, water, and air to survive;
§ plants and animals live and die (go through a life cycle); and
§ offspring of plants and animals are similar but not identical to their parents and to one another.
§ physical characteristics (body coverings, body shape, appendages, and methods of movement); and
§ other characteristics (wild/tame, water homes/land homes).
ü The learner will investigate and build an understanding of animal behavior and adaptation and how all living and nonliving things affect the life of a particular animal including: other animals, plants, weather, and climate.
ü The learner will recognize that humans can understand themselves better by learning about animals.
