PBS Earth's endangered www.pbslearningmedia.org This collection, featuring photographs of endangered species, may be used to support curriculum on endangered and at risk animals within the context of interdependent relationships and ecosystems for grades K – 8. The photos are of a variety of animal species that are considered endangered or at risk according to the conservation status of species classified by the World Wildlife Fund and the IUCN Red List. Each of the photos has been individually selected from the prestigious collections of Getty Images for use by PBS LearningMedia teachers and students. Animals can be seen in their habitats - both wild and manufactured through conservation efforts, and represent animal species that are classified by the following risk levels: critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable, and near threatened, as classified by the World Wildlife Fund. Check out the accompanying Teacher's Guides and a Collection Index.
Wild Kratts PBS www.pbslearningmedia.org Wild Kratts joins the adventures of Chris and Martin Kratt as they encounter incredible wild animals, combining science education with fun and adventure as the duo travels to animal habitats around the globe. Each adventure explores an age-appropriate science concept central to an animal's life and showcases a rarely seen wildlife moment, all wrapped up in engaging stories of adventure, mystery, rescue, and the Kratt brothers' brand of laugh-out-loud-comedy that kids love. The educational goals of Wild Kratts are to: 1) Teach six to eight-year-old viewers natural history and age-appropriate science by building on their natural interest in animals. 2) Develop and strengthen basic skills of observation and investigation that children will use increasingly as they continue their study of science. 3) Build excitement in science that will remain with them throughout their lives. Visit PBS Kids and PBS Parents to extend the learning with Wild Kratts educational games and parent-child activities.
