America's Wildlife:Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

An educational curriculum based on the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation

 

Thank you for your interest in this exciting new curriculum. Select the files below that you wish to download.

The new informal activities are first. These are followed by the formal high school curriculum, which has been developed in two versions. For those in Arizona, you will want to download the Arizona version which contains standards and other details specific to the state. For those outside Arizona, you will want to download the National version.

Lesson 1 and 2 require powerpoint presentations. Multiple versions of these powerpoints have been created. The narrated version that will run automatically with little instruction required. This has been developed as an mp4 video that can be played with most video software programs. The self-guided version does not contain the audio files. A script is provided in the respective lesson plans. Finally, the complete movie is provided for those that would like to see the two PowerPoints as a single movie. This would work well for museum kiosks and booth displays. The PowerPoints are the same for both the Arizona and National versions.

If you have problems with the files, do not hesitate to contact Eric Proctor at eproctor@azgfd.gov.

PowerPoint Files

Please note: these are extremely large files and may take an hour or more to download. Due to their size, some of the files have been compressed for easier download. These compressed files are saved in a .zip format. New computers should allow you to access the uncompressed files simply by right-clicking the downloaded folder and selecting "Extract All." If not, you will need to install a zip program. Many free versions can be found with a quick Internet search.

If you prefer and are able, the full movie as well as converted versions of the PowerPoints from both lessons are available for streaming from YouTube at :
