The Raptors of Minnesota - Grades K-8
This exciting environmental program, based on Minnesota and national science standards, is a learning experience students and teachers will not soon forget. Learners explore the various raptors found in Minnesota, the biomes in which they are found, and their role within each unique ecosystem. Learners have the opportunity to compare and contrast the features of raptors and non-raptors and define what makes a raptor unique. Students learn about the positive and negative impact humans have on our environment and are inspired by some of our greatest environmental success stories, such as the peregrine falcon and the bald eagle.
Finally, you will learn about The Raptor Center and its important role in protecting raptors and the world we share. Everyone leaves feeling inspired and empowered, having learned specific things they can do to help protect raptors and the environment.
