Missing Species Report Project

The Missing Species Report project is a socially engaged arts and science program designed to help raise awareness of 10 species of animals, plants, and insects that are severely endangered. It features a downloadable curriculum (that fits into national common core standards for literacy and art as well as next generation standards) for four different age groups, along with templates for the special species reports and flyers that students can develop, and with additional resources.

Additional Lesson Plans

Two additional lesson plans can also be adapted to complement various science and art subjects and your class schedules.
