Keep Wild Animals Wild

Go wild with IFAW's new lesson plans on wildlife!

Keep Wild Animals Wild lesson plans, films and worksheets provide everything teachers need to introduce students to what makes wild animals wild. They also explain why wildlife trade is a big threat not just to animals and ecosystems, but to people too, and how to help keep wild animals wild.

The lesson plans are tailored to three teaching levels and meet national curriculum programmes of study in English, science, geography and PSHE:

  • Key Stage 1 students (ages 5-7) will learn the differences between wild and domestic animals and how they can watch and appreciate wildlife responsibly,
  • Key Stage 2 and 3 students (aged 8-11 and 11-14) will learn about wildlife trade, why it is relevant to them and why we need to protect wild animals from wildlife trade.

The education resources include a teaching guide with assessments, lesson plans with student worksheets, student magazines, classroom films, a wall poster and more.
