Project Wild Aquatic K-12 Curriculum & Activity Guide Student Pages 

 In short, Project WILD's mission is to help students learn how to think, not what to think, about wildlife and the environment. All curriculum materials are backed by sound educational practices and theory and represent the work of many within the fields of education and natural resource management from across the country.  Aquatic WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide focuses on aquatic wildlife and ecosystems. Spanish-language versions of activities from both of these guides can be found in Proyecto WILD.  The most up to date version of Project WILD information can be found here.

Salmon In Schools


Salmon and Trout in the Classroom began in British Columbia and was first brought to California by a U.C. Cooperative Extension SeaGrant Advisor. In 1986, he organized the first workshop for teachers, at the Humboldt County Office of Education. 

This website contains resources for teachers and students. The Lessons page links to several curriculum guides, posters, and other educational materials. The On-line Resources page directs you to sites that provide information about the status of salmon and steelhead, recovery efforts, aquatic insects, oceans, fishing, and more.  The Articles page contains a collection of readings to help you understand salmon and steelhead. Several Videos show salmon and trout spawning, leaping, and living.
