Correlations

Documenting how WILD curricula help educators meet national and state standards is an ongoing effort. The documents linked below will aid educators in using the Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide and the Aquatic WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide to meet performance expectations and anchor standards. Your input on WILD correlations or on how activities can be implemented to further strengthen correlations is encouraged. Please submit your comments to info@councilforee.org.

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 Common Core Standards

Efforts are underway to further correlate Project WILD and Aquatic WILD activities to Common Core State Standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). Links to Common Core standards that are currently available are listed below.

Children's Environmental Literature


An updated Children's Environmental Literature Bibliography is available for download courtesy of Wisconsin's Project WILD, Project Learning Tree, and Project WET programs. This popular resource was initially developed in 1997 and has been revised as a reading list for early childhood providers and to help teachers meet the requirements of the No Child Left Behind legislation (NCLB). The bibliography contains more than 400 books, over 300 of them new additions. For easy teacher reference, the books are grouped according to topic area and age group. To download the bibliography, click here.
