Project Wild gets physical

While many people were getting their exercise by running their taxes to the post office on April 15, physical education instructors from the Clark County School District were going wild. Sixteen physical education teachers from both elementary and secondary schools attended a special Project Wild workshop conducted by the Nevada Department of Wildlife at Becker Middle School.

They were at the workshop because school administrators are encouraging PE teachers to tie their programs to the Nevada Education Standards for science. When the teachers learned that Project Wild activities were correlated to the life science standards, they wanted a demonstration and hoped that they could be correlated to PE standards as well.

Project Wild is a curriculum for students in kindergarten through 12th grade that teaches about wildlife through science, social studies, math, language arts, visual arts, music and physical education activities. In the workshop, the teachers reversed roles, becoming the students and participating in very physical activities from the Project Wild curriculum.

In the end, teachers participating in this workshop were able to correlate these activities to the Nevada State Education standards for physical education. All of the activities fulfilled many of the standards that teachers are required to incorporate in their lessons.
