The Wild Ones
Review by Michael Wilkinson.
Reprinted from the EdRes mailing list.
The Wild Ones is an ever-growing on-line educational network providing teachers and their students opportunities to design and work on collaborative investigations with moreore than two hundred schools already linked.
The Wild Ones is the most recent addition to the Wildlife Preservation Trust (WPTI) family. WPTI was founded by the naturalist and author, Gerald Durrell. An integral part of The Wild Ones is a supplemental newsletter, "The Wild Times" published every trimester (September, December, and March). Each issue portrays an animal, a researcher and includes student poetry, artwork, and articles.
"The Teacher Connection" provides teachers with tie-in classroom activities and projects facilitating the hands-on learning process.
The site provides information on endangered species, the opportunity to communicate with researchers studying endangered species, and a childrens forum to exchange ideas concerning wildlife preservation.
For a limited time, subscriptions will be offered free of charge. Teachers interested in their class becoming members of The Wild Ones should fill out and return the "Subscription form" through our World Wide Web site.
