4-H Wildlife Stewards Classroom Program
Join the 4-H Wildlife Stewards Classroom Program!
The 4-H Wildlife Steward Program works closely with classroom teachers throughout the year to support students in meeting learning standards through engagement in hands-on natural science learning outside the classroom door. Students study local ecology, utilizing field equipment to collect data, make observations and record findings utilizing a field journal. All activities promote and reinforce science practices learned inside the classroom. Through the program students have the opportunity to prepare and share research and give a presentation at the annual 4-H Wildlife Stewards Summit (youth conference).
Participating teachers report, “This program builds skills in research, expository writing, technology, presentation and speech standards”, “This program makes science come alive for my students”.
