This program is tailored to the needs of elementary-aged children from kindergarten to fifth grade. The resources found within focus on tiger conservation in the 13 tiger-range countries. This program is designed to teach children about 1) the current status of the wild tigers, 2) the culture and the people of a particular tiger range country, 3) threats to the tiger population, 4) Tigers United and our tiger conservation work and 5) how everyone can help save wild tigers.
We encourage you to introduce the program to your students through a science class or even in an after-school program. There are four lesson plans in each module to provide you with a lesson plan for each weekday. Consider this Resource Guide a foundation on which you can build and incorporate
assignments and activities that align with your state’s core curriculum requirements. For example, you can build vocabulary words into each grade that focus on tigers and conservation. Older students can calculate the percentage of habitat lost or the ratio of tigers to people within a country. You can build
writing assignments on tigers into your language arts lessons or build a tiger model into either art or science by requiring students to use recycled materials to make the model. We want to provide a framework for you and offer a program that is flexible, so teachers can adapt to their classroom and pull activities from any of the lessons or the Resource Guide.
When you have completed the program, email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us the number of students in your classroom. We will ship Tigers United gifts to you to distribute to your class. You can also download a certificate of completion from our website to give to your students.
