In the Rocky Mountain Wolf Quest students will be challenged to research and debate the various positions around the reintroduction of wolves to the Southwestern Rockies.
The Quest will lead them on a journey of Uncovering and Exploring the facts and perceptions behind wolves and their reintroduction, and how wolf reintroduction would effect the people and ecosystem of Colorado through a case study of a real-life scenario in Yellowstone Park. Students will be encouraged to form their own well-informed opinion on wolf reintroduction, and given tools and resources to help educate others in their community on this prescient topic.
Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a competition presenting their opinion on wolf reintroduction, and be featured with other students across Colorado on the Wolf Quest website.
About Project Hero
Project Hero is an interactive digital tool that uses storytelling to guide students through frameworks we call Quests to teach Standards across all elementary grades. Each Quest is tailored to a specific problem and guides students through a learning journey using critical thinking and other 21st Century skills to develop real-world solutions to local environmental problems. There are a host of Quests in the lineup set to be released over the next year, so the areas of focus will continue to expand.
There is a small grant opportunity related to each registered Quest, providing funds to help support the implementation of associated projects. Project Hero is the next step in making Project Learning Garden an even more powerful teaching and learning tool. And it is free and available for everyone.
