Welcome to our Educator Resource Center! One of the Endangered Species Coalition’s objectives is to provide endangered species conservation information and resource material to teachers, educators, parents, nature centers, and other organizations.
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.
Endangered Species Day
The annual Endangered Species Day (third Friday in May) provides numerous opportunities to coordinate student discussions on endangered species conservation and to initiate specific in-class and outdoor actions that can help protect plant and animal species.
