International Crane Foundation: Education

Birds offer a wonderful focal point for school lessons in subjects from science to art. The educational resources on this page come from the International Crane Foundation (ICF) (previously featured in the 10-29-2004 Scout Report), a non-profit organization located in Baraboo, Wisconsin, and dedicated to the worldwide conservation of "cranes and the ecosystems, watersheds, and flyways on which they depend." On the page linked above, educators can find multidisciplinary resources for all K-12 grade levels. The "Activity Packets" include lessons introducing students to cranes (Preschool-Grade 2), exploring crane habitats (Grades 3-5 and 6-8), and understanding crane genetics (Grades 9-12), as well as activities in Spanish. Other resources include instructions for making origami cranes, a multimedia program on estuaries, video and other remote content from the ICF facilities, and a request form for a Whooping Crane trunk filled with interactive learning tools. There are also "At Home Education Resources" developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which include live monthly webinars and crane-themed activities for kids. Interested readers can follow ICF on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@savingcranes on all three platforms).
