Project WILD curriculum

Minnesota Project WILD logo

There are four main activity guides: Project WILD and Aquatic WILD, Growing Up WILD and Flying WILD. These easy to use curriculums offer educators a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities for ages Pre-K (3-5) and grades K-12.

  • The objectives, methods, background information, step-by-step instructions, and ideas for expanding the lesson are stated in each activity.
  • Activities are hands-on and can be used for indoor and outdoor learning. They also include STEM, NGSS, and Common Core correlations.
  • Guides have cross-referencing index of activities by grade level, subject area, skill, setting and topic.
  • No special background knowledge or equipment is needed. The interdisciplinary nature of the activities allows them to be easily integrated with existing curriculum.
